"You got a drag queen to play me!" -- Tony Kushner, radical playwright behind Angels in America, has a new play in the works, "Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy," featuring First Lady Laura Bush and a copy of "The Brothers Karamazov." This is more controversial than you might think -- even among the hard-core theater liberals. Salon went to a recent staged reading, which included a scene Kushner had finished just hours before. Hijinks ensue.
