Remembering Terrence McNally
I count myself blessed to have seen many productions of his plays and musicals. Three of them resonated with me in particular, and all for different reasons. The aforementioned Love! Valour! Compassion! made me think a lot about my place in the gay community, my friends (who were my family) and living as a gay men in harrowing times. Then there was Kiss of the Spider Woman, a show that is one of my all-time favorites. I could write a book about what it means to me, but I'll just say that the characters inspire me. The same can be said for my other McNally favorite, The Full Monty, but in entirely different ways.
Laughter. Tears. Compassion.
Thank you, Mr. McNally.
Rest in Peace.
