The Boys in the Band
Before there were marches, there was a band. Producers Ryan Murphy and David Stone bring Mart Crowley's landmark play to Broadway for a 50th anniversary production directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello and featuring an all-star cast that includes Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, Andrew Rannells, Robin de Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, and Tuc Watkins. A sensation when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1968, The Boys in the Band was originally slated for a short limited run. Overnight, the show became the talk of the town for its unflinchingly honest depiction of gay life, and went on to become one of the longest running Off-Broadway plays ever.
SYNOPSIS: A group of gay men gather in an NYC apartment for a friend’s birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault-lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.
- Running Time: 100 minutes with no intermission
