"We’re going to do it at Second Stage in September," the busy scribe told Playbill.com columnist Harry Haun at the opening night party for his current Broadway offering, Chita Rivera: The Dancer's Life. He added, "John Glover’s going to do it."
Glover recently appeared Off-Broadway in the Jon Robin Baitz work The Paris Letter. The actor previously collaborated with McNally on his Tony Award-winning turn in Love! Valour! Compassion! Second Stage could not confirm any information at press time.
"Basically, Some Men is all the events in the past 50 years that have led to same-sex marriage," explained McNally about his latest work. "It takes place at a wedding. Two men are getting married."
The prolific McNally's body of work includes plays (Master Class, Love! Valour! Compassion!) as well as librettos (Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman). He won Tony Awards for all four aforementioned works. Other pieces by the scribe include Frankie and Johnny in the Clair De Lune, The Full Monty, The Visit, Corpus Christi, The Lisbon Traviata, Andre’s Mother and Lips Together, Teeth Apart. His Dedication or the Stuff of Dreams recently played Off-Broadway and another new work, Crucifixion, made its debut San Francisco's New Conservatory Theatre Center. The sometime-librettist is also at work on the Marc Shaiman-Scott Wittman musical version of Catch Me If You Can.
