A Bright Room Called Day, at the Public Theater, is a cast-off from 1985 looking for an upgraded conclusion here in 2019. That Tony Kushner was so prescient in his thinking is astonishing. He leads us through the rise of Hitler in a few short months and parallels it to our political cess pool created by the current administration. This is not a show for the faint of heart or those folks averse to sitting for three hours.
