Meet Tyne Daly and the Modern Family of Broadway's Mothers and Sons

Terrence McNally continues the story he started more than two decades ago in his new family drama. logo

Four-time Tony Award winner Terrence McNally's new drama, Mothers and Sons, opened on Broadway last night at the John Golden Theatre. The play continues the story McNally began in 1990 with his short play Andre's Mother, set in the weeks following the death of Katharine Gerard's son, Andre, a victim of the AIDS epidemic. Now, years later, Katharine, played by Tony Award winner Tyne Daly, lands on the doorstep of Andre's former lover (Frederick Weller), who is now married to a younger man (Tony nominee Bobby Steggert) and has rounded out his "traditional" family lifestyle with a six-year-old son (Grayson Taylor). Take a look as TheaterMania chats with McNally and his cast about the next chapter of this family saga.
