There are four days left to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign for Every Act of Life, a documentary about Terrence McNally produced by Jeff Kaufman and Marcia S. Ross and directed by Kaufman.

The film is described as "the first documentary about one of the world's most honored and risk-taking writers, and an immersive exploration of how to make the third act of life as interesting as the first two. Through Mr. McNally's intimate and adventurous personal journey, the film is a unique inside history of the American theatre; the struggle for LGBT rights; battles with alcohol and cancer; passion, loss, and love; and the continual pursuit of inspiration in life and work."

Every Act of Life will feature interviews and performances with Audra McDonald, Nathan Lane, Angela Lansbury, Chita Rivera, F. Murray Abraham, Christine Baranski, Zoe Caldwell, Tyne Daly, Edie Falco, Billy Porter, Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty, John Glover, Anthony Heald, John Benjamin Hickey, John Kander, Roberta Kaplan, Larry Kramer, Rita Moreno, Joe Mantello, Tom Kirdahy, Jack O'Brien, John Slattery, Richard Thomas, Doris Roberts, Paul Libin, Lynne Meadow, Dominic Cuskern, Don Roos, Patrick Wilson, Jon Robin Baitz, Micah Stock, Peter McNally, John Tillinger, and Stanley Tucci, plus the voices of Bryan Cranston, Dan Bucatinsky, and Meryl Streep.
