Some plays are written, others are rewritten. The works of Tony Kushner belong firmly in the second category. Sitting in his office in Union Square, a tiny, book-lined room that is taller than it is wide (with a long ladder leading to the topmost shelf), he talked in specific detail about how he nurtures a work through its creative process.

ONE day in the winter of 1999, the playwright Tony Kushner mentioned to the actress Linda Emond that he was writing something that she might be right for. ''I have this thing I may want you to read,'' he informed her, with tantalizing vagueness. ''To read'' is a loaded verb in New York theater circles, especially when it is uttered by a dramatist

THEATER REVIEW; One Woman's Quest, Fraught With Cultural Land Mines
NYTimes - about 15 years
The woman nattering on about Afghanistan has none of the shiny urgency of a Tim Russert or a Cokie Roberts. She endlessly circles her subject and never seems to land on it. Her words are often ridiculously quaint, and so polysyllabic that they would never squeeze naturally into a sound bite. Yet this poetically vague creature, with her

FILM REVIEW; Three Sisters in London, With Lives Worth Mourning

Michael Winterbottom's uneven ''Wonderland'' could be called ''The Three Sisters'': a modern-day London turn on Chekhov, it deals with the anguish of three women whose existences are in varying stages of disintegration.

I ONCE asked John Schlesinger if he would ever return to making the kind of small, authentic English films, like ''A Kind of Loving'' and ''Billy Liar,'' that made his name in the early 60's. ''Why?

THEATER; Coward's 'Wings' Never Gets Off the Ground

DESCRIBING Dublin, where his new comedy, ''Waiting in the Wings,'' was trying out before making its way to London, Noel Coward wrote in his journal of Aug. 21, 1960: ''There is an atmosphere of amiable retrogressiveness about everything and everyone which, for a little while, is curiously attractive.'' Amiable retrogressiveness? What a deliberately

THE English expression ''taking coals to Newcastle'' pretty much sums up Noel Coward's American career. Arriving in New York on the Aquitania in May 1921, his head soon buzzed with the speed of Manhattan and the pace of Broadway drama; back home, he injected that speed into the staid drawing-room drama of London's West End and in the process

IN the years since his death in 1984, Francois Truffaut has come to stand for a certain kind of Gallic humanism -- a life-loving, lightly romantic view of the world as a place filled with pretty girls, adorable children and heroes illuminated by a wise, warm understanding of the fleeting nature of love. It was an image that Truffaut himself
