McNally, John J.
(1852?-1931)
   The critic and playwright was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Although he studied law at Harvard University, he went into newspaper work, becoming drama editor for the Boston Times, and later editing or writing for the Boston Star and the Boston Herald. Revels (1880) was the first in his series of plays for the Rogers Brothers. Besides his original works, including The Widow Jones and The Night Clerk (both 1895), he adapted spectacles from London's Drury Lane Theatre for American audiences.
