American playwright Tony Kushner is best known for Angels in America, the two-part drama that won the Pulitzer Prize and numerous Tony awards on Broadway, and won Emmies as a TV production. His plays are politically controversial, and are not always cheered by the critics.

A semi-autobiographical musical called Caroline, or Change got lukewarm reviews on Broadway, but four years later, a revival is playing to glowing notices, packed audiences and standing ovations at the Studio Theatre in Washington, D.C. Kushner talks about the show and takes caller questions about his work.
