“Art, Culture, Politics: An Evening with David Henry Hwang, Tony Kushner and Suzan-Lori Parks”

When: Wed., Feb. 3, 7 p.m. 2010

A few years ago, I attended a lecture by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison. Inspirational, to say the least, she came via CC's Cornerstone Arts Initiative, which has brought notable speakers for eight years. This year the school's outdone itself again, and if I were you, at 7 tonight, I'd be at the Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu) for "Art, Culture, Politics: An Evening with David Henry Hwang, Tony Kushner and Suzan-Lori Parks." Hwang is the first Asian American to win the Tony Award for Best Play for his M. Butterfly; Kushner, of Angels in America fame, has both a Pulitzer and a Tony to his name; and Parks is the first African American woman to earn a Pulitzer for Drama (Topdog/Underdog). Go, listen to the three friends talk about the future of playwriting, and soak up some of their professional ju-ju. — Kirsten Akens
