As the entire world celebrates the 50th anniversary of Pride, we look back at @theadvocatemag’s cover story about THE BOYS IN THE BAND and its pivotal place within the Gay Rights movement. Link in bio for full article.
In order to know where we’re going, we need to know where we’ve been. Next month, New York City welcomes World Pride as we mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. It’s also been 50 years since the landmark play THE BOYS IN THE BAND made history, a moment we celebrate with this special and timely message from Mart Crowley, Ryan Murphy and the cast who brought the show to spectacular life on Broadway last summer.
We are proud to celebrate 50 years of this game-changing play, now a 2019 Tony Award nominee for BEST REVIVAL OF A PLAY. #BoysInTheBand
Fifty years ago, Mart Crowley changed the course of history with #BoysintheBand. Now, the groundbreaking play The Washington Post calls “a turning point in the American theater” is nominated for the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. Congratulations, Mart – so many writers stand on your shoulders.
It’s been 50 years since the original cast filmed the movie version of THE BOYS IN THE BAND. Now, the full cast of the Broadway revival will reprise their roles this summer in a brand-new @netflix film of the groundbreaking play.
