The Boys in the Band
w Booth Theatre
The groundbreaking comic drama The Boys in the Band, celebrating its 50th Anniversary, will appear on Broadway for the first time ever in a strictly limited 15-week engagement this spring.
Mart Crowley’s landmark 1968 play centers on a group of gay men who gather in a 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. A true theatrical game-changer, The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution by putting gay men’s lives onstage – unapologetically and without judgment – in a world that was not yet willing to fully accept them.
The cast includes four-time Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Emmy nominee Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, American Horror Story), Golden Globe Award winner Matt Bomer (
