I hope what you say doesn't happen. I think Kushner certainly has the right to tell this story since he was there and did live some version of it. And Tesori, while not a person of color, is of course a woman and I think that matters. I mean I think she's brilliant regardless.

Kushner may have written about this the first time around, but if not I am sure he can describe with great eloquence where he was coming from. Why he decided to name this show and focus it on the maid character and not Noah (himself). It made me think of the recent film Roma, where the creator chose to tell about a slice of his childhood but make the focus of the story about the life and trials of his maid, who obviously had a big impact on him. Of course, his character is much more peripheral to the story of Roma compared with Noah in Caroline, who is rather central to the proceedings.
