Jesse Tyler Ferguson (as Sam Truman), Celia Keenan-Bolger (as Sally Truman), Zachary Quinto (as John Haddock), and Ari Graynor (as Chloe Haddock) will perform a live reading of Terrence McNally's play to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund. McNally passed away on March 24 due to coronavirus complications.
McNally's plays are like acid-wash jeans: People said they looked good in the ’90s, but it’s hard to remember why, according to our reviewer Adam Feldman. In this dated 1991 drama, two tense straight couples on AIDS-era Fire Island explain themselves in terms that ooze with self-pity. The uneven, disconnected cast can’t ignite McNally's soggy box of fireworks.
