The Boys in the Band
In 1968, Mart Crowley’s The Boys in the Band made its debut at the off-Broadway Theatre Four for 1,002 performances, before being adapted into a successful motion picture in 1970. The story revolves around a group of gay friends coming together for a friend's birthday party in Manhattan, and ends with stories about long-lost lovers, and one character coming out to his wife. The play has been critiqued for its tragic and bitchy characters, but has never been forgotten.
