Kushner On Miller

I was running to the post office at lunch today and heard Tony Kushner on NPR talking about Arthur Miller on what would be Miller's birthday.

You can hear it here.

Kushner has become one of the most eloquent defenders of Miller, O'Neill and Williams as the playwrights who forged the way for serious American Drama.

Despite the inexplicably consistent efforts of many critics, some whom I greatly admire, to bring it down, Death of a Salesman, as Kushner explains, will continue to exist as a work of art.
