The piece is It's an Undoing World, or Why Should It Be Easy When It Can Be Hard? It features music and, reported the New York Times, "takes place in the minds of three generations of Jewish women and is written in a Yiddish-inflected style." Kushner's Caroline, or Change, a musical written with Jeanine Tesori, is currently playing at the Public Theater. The second part of his television adaptation of his Angels in America will air on HBO on Dec. 14.
