Madison Lyric Stage Presents "The Boys in the Band"

By Mart Crowley

Directed by Marc Deaton

Before Stonewall, before AIDS, before Marriage Equality – there was Mart Crowley’s landmark play The Boys in the Band.

It premiered Off-Broadway in 1968 and was turned into a film the next year by the director William Friedkin.  In 2018, it premiered on Broadway for its 50th anniversary, and was a celebrated Netflix film in 2020.

The Tony Award-winning play revolves around a group of gay men who gather for a birthday party in New York City, and was groundbreaking for its humorous and poignant portrayal of gay life.

The play has been called “a true theatrical game-changer, helping 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.”
