Tony Kushner is a Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright (Angels in America, Caroline, or Change) whose works tackle some of today's most sensitive social issues. An Emmy Award winner and two-time Tony Award winner, Kushner is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for the 2005 film "Munich," directed by Steven Spielberg. In 2008, he became the first recipient of the Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award, the largest theater award in the United States.
The Artists in Residence program, created by the University of Utah's Tanner Humanities Center and College of Fine Arts, brings important artists and musicians to Utah to lecture, teach, and give culturally significant performances on campus and in the community. Since 2013, we have hosted the Al-Andalus Ensemble, internationally acclaimed musicians that merge classical, jazz, and contemporary music with traditions from the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe, and Anna Deavere Smith, playwright, actor, and recipient of a 2012 National Humanities Medal, the 2013 Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, and the 2015 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities.
