IT’S ONLY A PLAY by Terrence McNally
November 24 – 10, 2023
IT’S ONLY A PLAY is a deliciously hilarious comedy by iconic gay playwright Terrence McNally. A wealthy, naive, first-time Broadway producer, Julia Budder, is throwing an amazingly star-studded party in her luxurious Manhattan home, but the sounds of the party can only be heard because the play takes place entirely in Julia’s bedroom, where an eccentric cluster of hysterical characters huddle for various reasons and grievances while waiting for the opening night reviews to come in. There’s a pill-popping leading lady, a TV actor that turned down a role in the play and is secretly hoping it gets panned, a very anxious playwright, a critic who wished he was a playwright and a director who is begging for someone to be brave enough to finally tell him that his pretentious concepts are full of crap.
Playwright Terrence McNally is arguably our greatest gay playwright with classics like LOVE! VALOUR! COMPASSION!, CORPUS CRISTI, THE LISBON TRAVIATA and many more. He’s also written the book for musicals such as KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN, THE FULL MONTY and RAGTIME.
