Before there were marches, there was a band. The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution by putting gay men’s lives onstage, unapologetically and without judgement, in a world that was not yet willing to fully accept them. To celebrate the Broadway play’s 50th anniversary, a limited 15-week revival is heading to the Booth Theatre in New York.
The Boys in the Band centers on a group of gay men who gather in an NYC apartment for a friend’s birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music is turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.
The star-studded revival features an all-gay cast headlined by Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells. Robin de Jesus, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, Charlie Carver and Tuc Watkins also star. The production marks both Carver and Watkins’ Broadway debut. David Stone and Ryan Murphy are producing the play with Joe Mantello directing. Watch the cast talk about the revival below.
