EVERY ACT OF LIFE profiles world-renowned, four-time Tony winning playwright Terrence McNally’s pioneering five-decade career in the theater, focusing on his struggle for LGBT rights, triumph over addiction, and his pursuit of love and inspiration at every age. Featuring interviews and performances with Angela Lansbury, F. Murray Abraham, Larry Kramer, Nathan Lane, Tyne Daly, Edie Falco, Chita Rivera, Audra McDonald, Stanley Tucci, and many more.

“Terrence McNally receives a warm salute as a vital voice in the American theater and an LGBT activist who made the personal political. Jeff Kaufman’s briskly entertaining film will be met with heartfelt applause from theater-lovers and LGBT audiences.” — David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
