BWW TV Exclusive: Meet the Nominees- THE VISIT's Terrence McNally- 'I've Always Believed in It'
We are yet another day closer to the biggest night on every theatre-lover's calendar- the 69th Annual Tony Awards, which will be co-hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming on Sunday, June 7 (8PM on CBS). Earlier this month, the 2015 Tony nominees gathered to meet the press and BroadwayWorld was on hand for the big day. Below, we bring you an exclusive interview with Terrence McNally, Best Book of a Musical nominee for The Visit.
McNally is the recipient of the Dramatists Guild Award for Lifetime Achievement and four Tony Awards. He was elected to the Theatre Hall of Fame and is currently represented on Broadway with IT'S ONLY A PLAY at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre on 45th St. to the right as you exit the Lyceum Theatre.
When the world's wealthiest woman returns home for the first time in decades, it's the talk of the town. When that woman is portrayed by the legendary CHITA RIVERA, it's Broadway history in the making. Sure to become the season's most delicious musical sensation, THE VISIT marks the historic final collaboration between the creators of the Tony award-winning masterwork Kiss of the Spider Woman. JOHN KANDER and FRED EBB, the Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning songwriters behind some of the most iconic musicals of the past 50 years, including Chicago and Cabaret, collaborate once more with four-time Tony Award winner TERRENCE McNALLY (Master Class, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman).
