Tony Kushner's "Slavs! Thinking about the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness"
"Rambunctiously funny, seriously moving ... a work of a brilliant and restless imagination." - The New York Times
"Slavs!" is Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tony Kushner's legendary follow up to "Angels in America." Leaving the familiar of New York, Kushner transports us to Russia circa 1985 at the beginning of Perestroika, through the fall of the Soviet empire in 1991. Along the way we encounter leaping Bolsheviks, drunken lesbians, wandering children and even a Babushka or two. Both brilliantly funny and timelessly sad, Tony Kusnher's thoughtful play gets a unique, cross-gendered production from The Custom Made Theatre Co. that isn't afraid to ask the eternal questions, while laughing at the presumption
of such a task.
"Slavs! Thinking About the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness" could only come from the mind of Tony Kushner, one this country's greatest dramatist. Its lust for life, understanding and truth makes for a unique theatrical experience you wont soon forget.
