The Boys in the BandPlay Reading
The Boys in the Band has been called “a true theatrical game-changer, which 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 Boys in the Band centres on a group of gay men who gather in an NYC apartment for a friend’s birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music is turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.
This play reading of The Boys in the Band is directed by Stuart Aikins and features Victoria’s local talents (artists to be released soon!). Proceeds from ticket sales support the Victoria Pride Society.
Presented by The House of Gabor, in partnership with Intrepid Theatre (OUTstages Festival / UNO Fest/ Fringe Festival).
The play premiered Off-Broadway in 1968 and was revived on Broadway for its 50th anniversary in 2018 starring Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, and Andrew Rannels.
Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
