Such a huge loss.
Terrence McNally, the brilliant playwright and librettist behind everything from The Ritz to Master Class, Corpus Christi to The Full Monty, and — of course — Love! Valour! Compassion!, has died after battling COVID-19. He was 81.
Mayor Bill de Blasio took time out to remember McNally in his presser:
