Few if any living playwrights have been as successful for as long as Terrence McNally. Nearing his ninth decade his body of work includes: Master Class, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime, Full Monty, The Ritz, Corpus Christi, Lips Together, Teeth Apart, Love! Valour! Compassion! and Frankie & Johnny in the Claire de Lune, to name just a few. But his life offstage has been just as fascinating, encompassing activism, addiction, romance, and the constant pursuit of artistic excellence. McNally shares his story onscreen with the help of friends and colleagues like Angela Lansbury, Rita Moreno, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, and many more, as captured by documentarian Jeff Kaufman (The State of Marriage). This is a film ALL theatre lovers should experience.
