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 (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).

The Boys in the Band is be produced by Ryan Murphy (Glee, Feud, American Horror Story) and David Stone (Wicked, Next to Normal, The Vagina Monologues).
