These three stunning plays are a testament to the extraordinary talent and comedic brilliance of Terrence McNally. All produced off-Broadway to great acclaim, his most recent works are gathered here for the first time in a unique collection of drama, romance, and comedy. The newest of the three plays, "The Lisbon Traviata, " is a powerfully moving tragicomedy about a crumbling homosexual marriage. And in Frankie and Johhnie in the Claire de Lune, a man and a woman, "not young, not old, no great beauties, either one, " come together in a fresh and witty display of emotional fireworks. McNally himself describes the final piece, the bitingly honest and uproariously funny "It's Only a Play," as his "attempt to describe what it was like to work in Broadway in the 1980s." These three unforgettable works, starkly individual yet all charged with brilliant wit and dearing intimacy, dazzle us with McNally's wisdom, compassion, and extraordinary brand of comic genius.

Review: Three Plays by Terrence McnallyUser Review - Goodreads
I only read "Frankie and Johnny and the Clair de Lune." Which was good - it originally had F. Murray Abraham and Kathy Bates in the roles, the movie version had Michelle Pfieffer and Al Pacino. Crazy.
