  • A predictably starry, rather standard, but satisfying overview of a prodigious career that is still going full-steam as the writer nears his ninth decade.

  • McNally's life has the sweep of an epic novel, except that the novel's inevitable movie version could never have as much star power as his life did.

  • It's a great introductory piece for those new to this area of theatre, and a pleasing chance for others to reflect on one of its greatest talents.

  • Like the playwright, it's wise, kind, amusing and more entertaining than deep. For theater lovers, the film is sparked by interviews with Broadway icons, from Audra McDonald to Angela Lansbury, Edie Falco to Christine Baranski.
