By Tony Kushner
Toneelgroep Amsterdam
Directed by Ivo van Hove

There are no feathers here. Instead of beating wings, there’s David Bowie’s otherworldly wails. With little more than a stack of vinyl records, a few fluorescent lights, and a saline drip, Dutch visionary Ivo van Hove and Toneelgroep Amsterdam deliver a revelatory take[1] on Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic. Encompassing both “Millennium Approaches” and “Perestroika,” this marathon production strips Kushner’s now-iconic characters—Prior Walter and his boyfriend Louis, Reaganite lawyer Roy Cohn, Mormon couple Joe and Harper Pitt—to their essence, boldly reimagining “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.”[2]
