Discussion: Tennessee Williams—Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, with John Lahr and Tony Kushner
For Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams’ plays – A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie – ushered in a “revolution” in American theater. But who was Williams the man? John Lahr, celebrated drama critic and New Yorker contributor, visits 92Y with his new Williams biography (Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, W.W. Norton, Sept. 22), and discusses it with playwright Tony Kushner.
