The theater world lost one of its brightest and most enduring lights on March 24. Terrence McNally, the 81-year-old “bard of American theater” died in Sarasota, Florida of complications from COVID-19. He was a prolific and award-winning chronicler of human experience, most notably in opening the world to gay life and the tragedy of AIDS. What was most evident in Mr. McNally’s writing, however, was his compassion. Receiving a Tony for Lifetime Achievement in 2019, he said, “The world needs artists more than ever to remind us what kindness, truth, and beauty are.” Please see the links below for more on Mr. McNally.
