THE BOYS IN THE BAND by Mart Crowley The Boys in the Band is one of the most groundbreaking plays of our time. Originally opening off-Broadway and recently revived with a starry Broadway production, this play 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. A true theatrical game-changer, The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution. The Boys in the Band (2018 Revised Version) is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
