The limited run revival of “The Boys In The Band”, at the Booth Theater in Manhattan through August 11th, is one of the biggest Broadway theater events of the year and possibly the gay theater event of the decade. The Stonewall-era play has been selling out since it opened and was the first show on The Great White Way this season to recoup its initial ($3.5 mm) investment. @brianhutchison3, a member of its groundbreaking all-gay male cast, has authored a commentary posted on CapturingRainbows.com today (click the link in my bio to read). There, he compares his flinching reaction to the lacerating pre-Gay Liberation drama when he first saw it 20 years ago to the pride and emotion he experiences nightly being in the cast of this poignant revival. Check out his article and see the play (also featuring Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, and Andrew Rannells, among others), if you can. Some of the same issues these self-loathing closeted gay men grappled with when the play was first written are still part of our everyday gay lives today. And the plot is leavened with humor more evident now, when audiences laugh with the characters rather than merely pity them. Thanks, Brian for sharing with us the experience of being part of this memorable event.
