The Boys in the Band

Directed by Lauren Burgat

November 10 to November 19, 2023

The 3rd production of the 2023-2024 Season

In his Upper East Side apartment, Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold, a self-avowed “thirty-two-year-old, pockmarked, Jew fairy,” complete with a surprise gift: “Cowboy,” a street hustler. As the evening wears on – fueled by drugs and alcohol – bitter, unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong.

This groundbreaking play premiered Off-Broadway in 1968 and ran for 1,001 performances. It was subsequently made into a feature film with the original cast, directed by Academy Award-winner William Friedkin. In 2018, The Boys in the Band made its Broadway debut at the Booth Theatre in an unprecedented production featuring a cast of entirely out-and-proud gay actors and was subsequently turned into a feature film on Netflix.

Fridays – 11/10 & 11/17 at 8PM
Saturdays – 11/11 & 11/18 at 8PM
