Summary
Panel discussion exploring the relationship between playwrights and directors. Panelists debate the merits of authors directing their own work, the impact of workshops, previews, and critics on the development of a play, the role of a dramaturg in a production, and related topics. Kushner talks about his experiences with his current Broadway success, Angels in America. Mason discusses the evolution of his drama The fiery furnace, and Tolins talks about various responses to his play The twilight of the Golds. Panelists also take questions from the audience.
