Broadway.com, along with producers Eric Kuhn and Justin Mikita, will present a live reading of Terrence McNally’s acclaimed play, ‘Lips Together, Teeth Apart‘ on Monday 6th April 2020 at 8:00 PM EDT.
Directed by Trip Cullman, ‘Lips Together, Teeth Apart‘ will star Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Sam Truman, Celia Keenan-Bolger as Sally Truman, Zachary Quinto as John Haddock, and Ari Graynor as Chloe Haddock.
Benefitting the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund, the livestream will be dedicated to McNally, who passed away on 24 March, due to coronavirus complications.
The play — which The New York Times called one of “Mr. McNally’s finest” — chronicles two straight couples visiting the Fire Island home of a relative who recently died of AIDS during the height of the pandemic.
Tom Kirdahy, the husband of the late McNally and a member of the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS Board of Trustees, comments:
“Terrence used his work to make seemingly insurmountable societal issues seem surmountable through his belief in our unwavering human spirit. Seeing Terrence’s rage, humor, love, and empathy in the face of a virus feels right during this time.”
