“Theater is collaborative, but life is collaborative. We need more of that spirit more than ever in the days ahead. We need what connects us, what makes us human beings. We need to bring the barriers down, not build walls, but tear them down. I really hope we’re very aware of the decisions we’re being asked to make as a country, but it starts with the individual. We need to start loving one another more, and seeing how connected we all really are. The stakes are really high now, higher than ever. And I think that’s the message of art.” - TERRENCE MCNALLY

“Terrence McNally receives a warm salute as a vital voice in the American theater and an LGBT activist who made the personal political. Jeff Kaufman's briskly entertaining film will be met with heartfelt applause from theater-lovers and LGBT audiences.” - The Hollywood Reporter
