About The Boys in the Band

Before there were marches, there was a band.

Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the groundbreaking comic drama THE BOYS IN THE BAND 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,” An Act of God), Emmy nominee ZACHARY QUINTO (Star Trek, “American Horror Story”), Golden Globe Award winner MATT BOMER (The Normal Heart, “White Collar,” Magic Mike) and two-time Tony Award nominee ANDREW RANNELLS (The Book of Mormon, “Girls”), as well as CHARLIE CARVER, ROBIN de JESÚS, BRIAN HUTCHISON, MICHAEL BENJAMIN WASHINGTON and TUC WATKINS. The production will be directed by two-time Tony Award winner JOE MANTELLO (The Humans, Other Desert Cities, Wicked).

Booth Theatre

222 West 45th Street, New York, NY 10036

Lee Shubert built the Booth Theatre in partnership with the producer Winthrop Ames. Named for the actor Edwin Booth (1833-1893), brother to the infamous John Wilkes Booth, the venue was actually the second New York theatre to bear this name. The first was built by Booth himself in 1869 on 23rd Street and 6th Avenue. Ames intended to present the most challenging and prestigious productions possible here.
