Theater critics from the New York Times, the Chicaco Tribune, and other national publications are not coming to Minneapolis to review the new Kusner play "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures." MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Morning Edition arts commentator and St. Paul Pioneer Press theater critic Dominic Papatola about the unusual move to ask national critics to not review a play.
