Prolific playwright Terrence McNally — who died from coronavirus complications in March — still left a $5 million estate to his husband and a nonprofit, courtroom records display.
The 81-year-previous 4-time Tony Award-winner had $5 million in “personal home,” in accordance to an estimate in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court papers incorporated with McNally’s will.
McNally left husband Thomas Kirdahy — whom he married in 2003 — his household assets, his possessions and a 50-per cent membership share of The Terrence McNally Memorial Fund which is a business to take care of McNally’s “literary residence,” the will signed in 2012 suggests.
The other 50 % of the Memorial Fund need to go to a nonprofit group, McNally specified in the will.
And Kirdahy, 57 — who is named as the executor on the estate — is to inherit “the residuary” of the estate this means “all the relaxation, residue and remainder of my estate home, of no matter what sort or nature and wherever located,” the will reads.
McNally — a Florida indigenous — handed in a Sarasota hospital March 24 from troubles related to COVID-19 immediately after having lived with a persistent obstructive pulmonary condition.
McNally’s Tony-profitable plays integrated, “And Things That Go Bump in the Night time,” “Love! Valour! Compassion!” and “Master Course.” He also gained a Tony Award for lifetime achievement.
The coronavirus has also contributed to the deaths of other noteworthy figures such as singer-songwriter John Prine, Broadway star Nick Cordero and “Desperately Trying to find Susan” actor Mark Blum.
Kirdahy — whom McNally lived with in a Greenwich Village condominium, the court papers say — did not straight away return a request for comment. A law firm for the estate also did not instantly react to an email inquiry.
