FULL SCRIPT PART ONE
MICHAEL – 30, average face, smartly groomed.
DONALD – 28, medium blond, wholesome American good looks.
EMORY – 33, small, frail, very plain.
LARRY – 29 with a starkly simple sense of individual style and color in his clothes. Dark eyes, dark hair, extremely handsome.
HANK – 32, tall, solid, athletic, attractive.
BERNARD – 28, African-American, tall, gaunt, nice-looking, dressed in Ive-League clothes.
COWBOY – 22, light blond, muscle-bound, too pretty.
HAROLD – 32, dark, lean, strong limbs, unusual face.
ALAN – 30, aristocratic Anglo-Saxon features.
In his Upper East Side apartment, Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold, a self-avowed “thirty-two-year-old, pockmarked, Jew fairy,” complete with surprise gift: “Cowboy,” a street hustler. As the evening wears on – fueled by drugs and alcohol – bitter, unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong.
This groundbreaking play premiered Off-Broadway in 1968 and ran for 1,001 performances. It was subsequently made into a feature film with the original cast, directed by Academy Award-winner William Friedkin (“The Exorcist”).
In 2018, The Boys in the Band made its Broadway debut at the Booth Theatre in an unprecedented production featuring a cast of entirely out-and-proud gay actors including Jim Parsons, Zach Quinto, Matt Bomer and more. “Its reappearance now is a triumph of liberation.” -Jesse Green, The New York Times
