Tony Kushner Has A New Play That Is Sure To Be Excellent

"The New York premiere of Tony Kushner's The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key to the Scriptures, starring Michael Cristofer, Linda Emond, Michael Esper and Steven Spinella, plays Off-Broadway at the Public Theater.

Here's how the show is billed: "In the summer of 2007, Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman and cousin of the late New York Congressman Vito Marcantonio, summons his three adult children to the family’s Brooklyn brownstone - to vote on the question of his committing suicide. The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide… explores revolution, radicalism, marriage, sex, prostitution, politics, real estate, unions of all kinds and debts both unpaid and unpayable."

The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide will officially open May 5 for a run through June 12 in the Newman Theater. For tickets, priced $75, phone (212) 967-7555 or visit PublicTheater."
