Tony Kushner at Ithaca College
On April 4, 2011, playwright Tony Kushner, author of the acclaimed play Angels in America, visited Ithaca College as the Distinguished Humanities speaker. Instead of the usual lecture, Kushner was interviewed by English Department chair Claire Gleitman, whose On the Verge reader's theater troupe performed Angels in America, part one, on April 14. Interview and reading both took place on the Hoerner Main Stage, Dillingham Center. Kushner's visit coincided with a Block I seminar in the Honors Program, "Tony Kushner and Angels in America."
