Esteemed lesbian pundit Rachel Maddow joins actress Elizabeth Marvel in a reading and discussion of Tony Kushner’s play Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy Sunday at 7 p.m. at Joe’s Pub, part of New York City’s Public Theater. Kushner’s 2003 play portrays Laura Bush reading a passage from Dostoyevsky to Iraqi children who were killed in American air strikes.
