Zeitgeist Stage Company’s 15 th Season will open in September with The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley.
This seminal work of the Off-Broadway movement premiered in 1968 and was a long-running hit onstage. Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold - a self-proclaimed pock-marked, Jew fairy - complete with a surprise gift, the Cowboy, a street hustler. As the evening wears on, fueled by drugs, alcohol and a surprise straight guest, unresolved resentments come to light when a game of Truth or Dare goes terribly wrong. The Boys in the Band is considered to be a groundbreaking work in American theater, the first truly honest portrayal of the lives of contemporary homosexuals. It ran for 1,001 performances before being adapted into a successful motion picture.
"Boys in the Band can still hold its own ........... Playwright Mart Crowley's point is about how the humor is shaped and defined by the pain."
-The New York Times
