“We must be oh, so grateful for Terrence McNally, master of the high-wire act. His vision celebrates the bravery of lonely souls; his voice resounds with the anguish and joy of life itself. Out of the mundane, he shapes the opera of the human heart. I look with wonder at this body of work.”
—Swoosie Kurtz

“Mr. McNally is an extraordinary playwright. His plays are witty, compassionate and always written with a stunning love of the theatre.”
