Adrienne Kennedy

People Who Led to My Plays

Editura: Theatre Communications Group

Anul aparitiei: 1996

In this remarkable memoir, Adrienne Kennedy charts her life from growing up in Cleveland in the 1930s and 40s in a middle-class black family through marriage and motherhood and her eventual move to New York City in the 50s. Out of a sequence of deceptively spare statements emerges a complex portrait of the artist as a young woman as she examines the people and events that compelled her to be a writer.

Thinking about the Longstanding Problems of Virtue: Essays, a Play, Two Poems and a Prayer

Editura: Theatre Communications Group

Anul aparitiei: 1995

A collection of writings from the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America. This volume by Tony Kushner features the play Slavs!, a "comic, mordant and marvelously provocative" look at the crumbling of the Soviet Union (SF Chronicle), as well as several essays, two poems and a prayer. "Kushner is an intense and poetical writer, a great shaper of words." -Laurie Winer, LA Times "Tony Kushner is drunk on ideas, on language, on the possibility of changing the world. His talent and his heart and his head are incendiary, combustible, explosive, heartbreakingly vital and on-target. This extraordinary new compendium contains enough haunting notions to keep anyone who cares sleepless for eternity. I want everyone to read him and listen to him and, yes goddamnit, think about what he says." -Larry Kramer "Terrific: his riff on the political and the personal, the theater of the ridiculous and the theater of the fabulous, synthesizes humor and commitment into wisdom." -Publishers Weekly "Tony Kushner's Slavs! just might be the best out-take of a Pulitzer Prize-winning play ever written." -Greg Evans, Variety "Bracing...original...rambunctiously funny...seriously ...

Editura: Theatre Communications Group

Anul aparitiei: 1993

"Nothing quite prepares you for the disturbing brilliance of Assassins ." -David Richards, The New York Times "Dark, demented humor, as horrifying as it is hilarious." -Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press "Intelligent and thrilling musical theatre. Dazzling in its originality." -Ken Mandelbaum, Theaterweek Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking achievements in musical theatre attain a new level of audacity and accomplishment in his latest creation, Assassins . Evoking a fraternity of Presidential assassins and would-be assassins across a hundred years of our history (including John Wilkes Booth, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, John Hinckley and Lee Harvey Oswald), he and collaborator John Weidman examine success, failure and the questionable drive for power and celebrity in American society. The result is an unusually imaginative and utterly idiosyncratic entertainment compounded equally of insight, pleasure, and provocation. Assassins is an important and permanent addition to the American stage.

A Bright Room Called Day

Editura: Theatre Communications Group

Anul aparitiei: 1994

"One of the things that makes Kushner such a vibrant writer is the way he luxuriates in exuberance and sorrow, emotions that these intense Berliners have in spades. His intellectual characters are tremendously passionate and expressive, so it's hard not to care about what they care about, and what happens to them." -Washington Post "A juggernaut of a play." -San Francisco Weekly "Unabashedly political, thought-provoking, a little scary and frequently a good deal of theatrical fun... intoxicatingly visionary." -Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner's powerful portrayal of individual resolution, irresolution and dissolution in the face of political catastrophe, A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of artists and political activists struggling to preserve themselves in 1930s Berlin as the Weimar Republic surrenders to the seduction of fascism. Often exquisitely lyrical, always exhilaratingly intelligent, the poetic world of the play moves beyond the bounds of historical reality with the morally outraged outpourings of a contemporary New York woman. Her fury at the Reagan and British presidencies brings into stark relief the discomfiting ...

"The most lavish and picturesque special effects are what come out of the mouths of the people onstage...Mr. Kushner makes words sing, swoon and somersault as no other living American playwright does." -Ben Brantley, New York Times "Rapture comes naturally to playwright Tony Kushner, and in The Illusion, he plants a big swoony kiss on the lips of the theater." -Nelson Pressley, Washington Post "[The Illusion] certainly has the stamp of Kushner's delight in language. This is a modern interpretation, filled with energy, colour and humour." -Telegraph (UK) "Fantastical tribute to the magic of theater...You may resist its charms at first, but soon enough you soften and, intoxicated by Kushner's language and swayed by the music of his ideas, you submit to The Illusion's ravishments." -TimeOut New York Tony Kushner's adaptation of The Illusion triumphs as a thoroughly modern rendering of Pierre Corneille's neoclassical French comedy while featuring the exquisite wordplay, beguiling comedy and fierce intelligence found in all of Kushner's work. An enchanting argument for the power of theatrical imagination over reality, The Illusion weaves obsession and caprice, romance and murder, fact ...

The Skriker

Anul aparitiei: 1994

Premiered at the Royal National Theatre, this extraordinary play by one of Britain's leading playwrights combines English folk tales with modern urban life. In terms of its language alone, it is as exciting and challenging on the page as on the stage. The play follows the Skriker, "a shapeshifter and death portent, ancient and damaged", in its search for love and revenge as it pursues two young women to London, changing its shape at every new encounter. Along with the Skriker come Rawheadandbloodybones, the Kelpie, the Green Lady, Black Dog and more, till the whole country is swarming with enticing and angry creatures that have burst from the underworld. Caryl Churchill has been hailed as a "dramatist who must surely be amongst the best half-dozen now writing" The Times . She is the author of some twenty plays including CLOUD NINE , TOP GIRLS , SERIOUS MONEY and MAD FOREST , all seen and admired all over the world.

"A landmark musical, one of those few shows that enter the permanent lore of the theatre by altering the vocabulary of dramatic possibilities." - Time "There's never been a franker, more sophisticated work written for the musical stage." - San Francisco Examiner "With a deliberately episodic, painfully accurate book by George Furth and an unforgettable score by Stephen Sondheim, Company is a total reversal of the usual musical comedy format. It is rigorously unsentimental. It has the courage to be both bitter and honest about love and marriage." -Kevin Kelly, Boston Globe A breakthrough Broadway musical in 1970, Company remains fresh, acerbic and original today. The musical's themes--marriage and commitment, friendship and loneliness--and its innovations in form mark it as a landmark of modern American musical theatre. Company 's 25 th anniversary was commemorated by two major revivals: in New York at the Roundabout Theatre Company and in London at the Donmar Warehouse. This edition incorporates all revisions and additions made for these productions.

Mad Forest: A Play from Romania

Editura: Theatre Communications Group

Anul aparitiei: 1996

"Bristles with the intelligence and insight of a major writer." -Financial Times "Brilliantly ... evoke[s] the mood of a country through snapshot images." -Guardian "An act of moral commitment as well as theatrical virtuosity." -London Sunday Times Mad Forest explores the reactions of ordinary people to confused events, focusing in particular on two families. What emerges is the dreadful damage done to people's lives by repression and the painful difficulties of lasting change. Caryl Churchill's play about the Romanian revolution was written after she, the director and a group of students from London's Central School of Speech and Drama went to Romania to work with acting students there. The play was first performed in 1990, only three months after their return. Caryl Churchill has written for the stage, television and radio.
