A virtual discussion celebrating the life of the late Tony-winning playwright Terrence McNally will take place June 17 at 8 PM ET on Ovee.

Remembering the life and legacy of the playwright and LGBTQ+ activist will be director Jeff Kaufman and Tony-winning actors André De Shields, John Glover, and John Benjamin Hickey.

Hickey and Glover worked with McNally on his Tony-winning play Love! Valour! Compassion!, and De Shields originated the role of Noah "Horse" T. Simmons in the McNally-David Yazbek musical adaptation of The Full Monty. The four artists will remember McNally and the influence he had on their lives and the world.
