Just Saturday night, at the Genius Awards party, wasn’t somebody opining into a mircophone that playwrights—unlike actors and directors—can’t make a living at their art?
You mean like a lot of other writers, musicians, and painters? I'm shocked.
Tony Kushner's standard of living is probably a bit higher than the average struggling playwright.
Play Writers win MacArthur genius grants all the time (Sarah Ruhl comes to mind) and that's $500,000.
playwrights aren't worth 200K. architects are, however, worth 100K.
$200,000 could sustain my playwriting for a good ten years. I sure hope I get it after Kushner.
