Every Act of Life
Consider this your master class in Terrence McNally, the openly gay playwright who has never shied away from his sexuality, writing his way through the varied eras of free love as well as the tragedy of the AIDS crisis. He has covered this ground with plays such as Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune and Love! Valor! Compassion!, and the books for musicals such as Kiss of the Spider Woman and The Full Monty. And he’s not finished yet!
Discover more about this incredible queer activist and Tony Award-winning theatre icon in this sparkling documentary, which not only features interviews with McNally’s theatre pals, such as Nathan Lane, Christine Baranski and Stanley Tucci, but also with the man himself. It’s time to put this quiet achiever firmly in the spotlight.
