Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Andrew Rannells, Zachary Quinto & Tuc Watkins star in Broadway production of ‘The Boys in the Band’
Had to share this amazing piece of news via TheaterMania – it’ll be the gayest thing on Broadway since Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly!
A star-studded cast led by Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, and Andrew Rannells will be seen in the debut Broadway production of Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking play The Boys in the Band, running April 30-August 12 at the Booth Theatre. The 50th anniversary production will be directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello.
The quartet will take on the roles of Michael, Harold, Donald, and Larry, respectively. They will be joined by Robin de Jesús as Emory, Brian Hutchison as Alan, Michael Benjamin Washington as Bernard, and Tuc Watkins as Hank. Casting for the role of Cowboy is still to be announced.
Crowley’s 1968 comic drama 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.
The Boys in the Band is produced on Broadway by Ryan Murphy and David Stone.
