Guthrie's KUSHNER CELEBRATION Receives Rave Reviews, Continues Thru 6/28

Guthrie Theater's KUSHNER CELEBRATION continues in Minneapolis with raves for all three productions. 

THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE TO CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM WITH A KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES
on the McGuire Proscenium Stage through June 28

"The new play commissioned of Tony Kushner by the Guthrie Theater... is the clear successor to Kushner's masterpiece, Angels in America, picking up many of the same arguments about love, sexuality, and politics while adding many more--and brilliantly.... The thrill of Kushner's probing is delightfully dizzying, like having a conversation with the smartest person you know." -- Minnesota Monthly

"A success - sprawling, yearning, at times emotionally violent, it is also packed with a level of complexity, sophistication and understanding that distinguishes it as a potentially important new American work." -- Variety

"In so many ways, The Intelligent Homosexual is just an old-fashioned piece of dramatic entertainment waiting to be discovered by a new audience-one that has never seen anything like it from Tony Kushner, ever before." -- Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

TINY KUSHNER
in the Dowling Studio, extended through June 13

"Kushner here is at his most unfettered, his humor and intelligence freed from loyalty to his longer work or the grand, earnest themes that underpin it. It's by no means light, this Tiny collection, but there's a welcome warmth and sense of play that makes one game for the most far-flung scenarios." -- City Pages

"The night is a roller-coaster ride through the playwright's imagination and an ode to his facility with style, tone and language." -- St. Paul Pioneer Press

"Part of the Guthrie Theater's season dedicated to the playwright, "Tiny Kushner" is a slam-bang series of five plays providing kaleidoscopic windows into the recesses of the artist's fertile mind." -- Variety

CAROLINE, OR CHANGE
on the Wurtele Thrust Stage through June 21

"An engrossing, must-see event! Oglesby [as Caroline Thibodeaux] delivers the best performance on a Twin Cities stage this year." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

"As marvelous, enchanting, and soul-stirring a show as you're ever going to see, and if you choose to forego the chance to experience the Guthrie's absolutely spectacular production of it, you will be missing the opportunity of a lifetime....There's no way for mere words to do this production justice. You have to see it to appreciate it. This is a show everyone ought to see." -- Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

"The Guthrie's production is one of those transcendent events that one experiences only rarely in a lifetime of going to the theater." -- MinnPost
