About the Author

Terrence McNally won his third Tony Award for his play Master Class. He received the 1995 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics' Circle Awards for Best Play as well as the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play for Love! Valour! Compassion! His other plays include A Perfect Ganesh; Lips Together, Teeth Apart; Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune; and It's Only a Play, all of which began at the Manhattan Theatre Club. He also wrote the book for the musical adaptation of Kiss of the Spider Woman, for which he received a Tony Award. Other stage works include Bad Habits, The Ritz, Where Has Tommy Flowers Gone?, And Things That Go Bump in the Night, Next and the book for the musical The Rink. McNally wrote the screenplays for Frankie and Johnny and The Ritz and a number of TV scripts including Andre's Mother for which he won an Emmy Award. He received two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Rockefeller Grant, a Lucille Lortel Award and a citation from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He died in 2020.


McNally's well-crafted, quip-filled drama — which depicts Callas teaching at Juilliard, circa 1971 (her voice was virtually destroyed by then) — is less a biography and more a love letter to La Divina.
