Playwright Terrence McNally dies of coronavirus

BBC, London
Playwright Terrence McNally dies of coronavirus

Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally has died in Florida of complications from coronavirus, according to his husband Tom Kirdahy.


 
The four-time Tony winner, 81, was known for his thoughtful chronicles of gay life, homophobia, love and AIDS.

McNally was a lung cancer survivor and had lived with a chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.

One of America’s great playwrights, he wrote more than three dozen plays in his nearly 60-year career.

Beginning on Broadway in 1963, McNally still had his name up in lights until last year’s revival of his play Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, starring Audra McDonald.

Broadway and New York theatres - the institutions where McNally made his mark - have been closed for more than a week due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Born in St Petersburg, Florida, McNally grew up in Texas before attending Columbia University in New York.

He died in hospital in Sarasota, Florida, on Tuesday, his representative told US media.

He leaves behind his husband. The pair were joined in a civil union in 2003 in Vermont and married in 2010 in Washington, DC.
