Tony Kushner grew up in Lake Charles, the setting for his 2003 musical Caroline, or Change. The drama about a black single mother who struggles to raise her children working as a maid is currently being presented by Loyola University and Jefferson Performing Arts Society at Westwego Performing Arts Theatre. The playwright is best known for his two-part drama Angels in America, for which Angels in America: Millennium Approaches won a 1993 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. He also wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. Jim O'Quinn, founding editor of American Theatre, interviews Kushner Thursday at Loyola University. Free admission.
