Steve McGarry plays Nick in Anne Nelson’s play The Guys, a story about the aftermath of 9/11.
Steve McGarry is a Boston-area voice talent and singer, as well as a software engineer. One of his fondest performance memories was being part of a quartet which sang both the USA and Canada national anthems for a packed TD Boston Garden, before a Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors NBA game.
From Steve: “In the play The Guys, a New York Fire Department captain, Nick, is struggling to write eulogies for his men who were lost in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. He enlists the help of Joan, an editor, and, through a series of interviews, they collaborate to properly eulogize each man.
The monologue I selected is Nick’s description of his best friend, Patrick. In this character study, Wren brought me along a lengthy, emotional journey, which revealed Nick’s pain, sorrow, loss, guilt, and humor, in what I feel has been my most-engaging acting performance, to date.”
