On Tuesday 24 March 2020 we were deeply saddened to learn of the death of the celebrated playwright Terrence McNally of complications from coronavirus.
Terrence McNally was the author of the play Love! Valour! Compassion! which Sedos will stage later this year. He also wrote the book for three musicals which Sedos has performed: Ragtime (2019), A Man of No Importance (2013) and Kiss of the Spider Woman: the Musical (2010).
During a career spanning nearly 60 years, McNally created a vast body of work, including some 40 plays, as well as the books for musicals and libretti for operas. He won four Tony Awards, plus he was presented with a lifetime achievement award at last year's Tony Awards.
McNally, 81, was a lung cancer survivor who suffered from an underlying lung condition.
