A-Listers Talk About the Broadway Revival of ‘The Boys in the Band’

The groundbreaking comic drama The Boys in the Band is making its triumphant return to the Broadway stage this spring, and they are bringing some A-list talent along with it.

The show, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, centers 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.

It eventually was adapted into a movie back in 1970 that starred Kenneth Nelson, Leonard Frey and Cliff Gorman.  The film has a 100 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes and earned Kenneth a Golden Globe nomination. 

Now, it's back on the Broadway stage, and its brought along some major A-list talent, many of which are openly gay in real life.  The show stars Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Jim Parsons, Andrew Rannells and more as each of them discussed what it's like to be in this groundbreaking show in a new YouTube video posted on Monday.
