First Look at Netflix Original Film ‘THE BOYS IN THE BAND’

Netflix has released a series of first look images for the upcoming Netflix Original Film, THE BOYS IN THE BAND, launching globally on Netflix on 30th September 2020.

More than fifty years after Mart Crowley‘s groundbreaking 1968 play first premiered Off-Broadway, THE BOYS IN THE BAND now returns to the screen in a new adaptation that reunites acclaimed director Joe Mantello with the entire, all-star cast of the Tony Award-winning 2018 Broadway revival.

THE BOYS IN THE BAND stars Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, Andrew Rannells, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, and Tuc Watkins.

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), Michael’s 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 Jesús), a decorator who never holds back; and a guileless hustler (Charlie Carver), hired to be Harold’s gift for the night. What begins as an evening of drinks and laughs gets upended when Alan (Brian Hutchison), Michael’s straight-laced college roommate, shows up unexpectedly and each man is challenged to confront long-buried truths that threaten the foundation of the group’s tight bond.
