Lonergan went to Walden School high school, known to have one of the strongest drama programs in Manhattan before it was closed. He later on went to Wesleyan University to train as a director and playwright, and also graduated from New York University’s Playwright Program.

Lonergan’s career started as early as 18 when the play that he wrote – “The Rennings Children” -was selected during the Young Playwright’s Festival in 1982 while he was still an undergraduate.

After finishing his education, Lonergan worked briefly as an industrial show writer, and a speechwriter, with with various companies including the Environmental Protection Agency, Fujifilm, and Weight Watchers. His early years as a writer helped start his career and also his net worth.

In the early ‘90s Lonergan went back to writing plays, and in 1993 wrote “Betrayal by Everyone”, but it was in 1996 that his play “This Is Our Youth” became a theatrical success, and was even nominated for Best Play at the “Drama Desk Award.” It was followed by “The Waverly Gallery” which was also nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Other plays that he wrote include “Lobby Hero” in 2001, “True to You” in 2004, and “The Starry Messenger” in 2009 to name a few. His thriving career writing plays helped establish him as a writer, and also helped his wealth.

In 1994 Lonergan also entered the world of film and television, writing an episode for the series “Doug”. After writing for the film “Analyze This” in 1999, he was also eventually asked to write for “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” in 2000, adding to his net worth.
