The Terrence McNally Issue Jan/Feb 2021
This edition of The Dramatist is a special tribute issue in honor of Terrence McNally. It isn't often that an entire issue is dedicated to one person; Terrence McNally is that rare exception for many reasons, including his impressive body of work, his dedication to mentorship, his outspoken advocacy for authorial rights, and for his career-long support and service to the Guild and the Dramatists Guild Foundation. (He joined the Guild in 1963, was elected to Council in 1970, and served as Vice President from 1981-1999.) Guest editors Lynn Ahrens and Gretchen Cryer highlight the beloved playwright's wisdom, passion, wit, and dedication to his theatrical community through a Roundtable on Terrence McNally's Influence as well as articles on the craft of writing penned by Terrence himself. Tari Stratton presents a comprehensive timeline of Terrence McNally's achievements- which the editors liken to trying to capture the ocean in a single bucket -and friends, collaborators, and Terrence's husband, Tom Kirdahy, offer moving tributes to the deeply revered theatrical luminary.
