Tyne Daly Performs A Scene From Terrence McNally’s Gay Broadway Drama ‘Mothers And Sons’: VIDEO


Coming on the heels of her Tony Nomination for her performance in Terrence McNally’s new AIDS memory play, “Mothers and Sons,” actress Tyne Daly has offered up a performance of a scene from the play for The New York Times

The play, which first debuted last June at The Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania, is now on Broadway at the Golden Theatre and nominated for two Tonys—one for Ms. Daly and one for the play itself. As our own Naveen Kumar put it, the play “offers a present snapshot of lives affected by the height of the AIDS crisis—a mother who lost her son in his prime, and the lover who survived him to eventually start his own family.”  

Watch Daly display her dramatic chops, AFTER THE JUMP…

  4. Tyne Daly is a power house. I remember watching Cagney and Lacey with my Grandmother, then Judging Amy with my Mother. God, I'm gay.

    But there is just an honesty in Tyne's eyes that cuts right through me.

  5. A very good show.

  6. A little underwhelmed here, probably because of McNalley's writing, because no one who professes to be that angry and disaffected can also be a balanced person.

    Right, she's not supposed to be a balanced person!

    And the answer to that, for me, that I've seen enough of angry and disaffected people in drama and in life. They're not worth the time it takes to walk away.

  10. The only other actress I can think of who matches this level of performance is Stockard Channing. Can you imagine if someone put Daly and her onstage together in something, maybe playing Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas?
