The Boys in the Band | Official Trailer | Netflix

Premieres on Netflix on September 30, 2020

More than fifty years after Mart Crowley's play became an unexpected smash hit for putting gay men's lives center stage with honesty and humor, THE BOYS IN THE BAND returns to the screen in a new adaptation that reunites acclaimed director Joe Mantello with the all-star cast of the Tony-winning, 2018 Broadway production. In 1968 New York City - when being gay was still considered to be best kept behind closed doors - a group of friends gather for a raucous birthday party hosted by Michael (Jim Parsons), a screenwriter who spends and drinks too much, in honor of the sharp-dressed and sharp-tongued Harold (Zachary Quinto). Other partygoers include Donald (Matt Bomer), Michaelís former flame, now mired in self-analysis; Larry (Andrew Rannells), a randy commercial artist living with Hank (Tuc Watkins), a school teacher who has just left his wife; Bernard (Michael Benjamin Washington), a librarian tiptoeing around fraught codes of friendship alongside Emory (Robin de Jesķs), a decorator who never holds back; and a guileless hustler (Charlie Carver), hired to be Haroldís gift for the night. What begins as an evening of drinks and laughs gets upended when Alan (Brian Hutchison), Michaelís straight-laced college roommate, shows up unexpectedly and each man is challenged to confront long-buried truths that threaten the foundation of the groupís tight bond.
