Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, and Matt Bomer will star in a limited Broadway engagement of "The Boys in the Band," directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello. Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking 1968 play is scheduled to play the Booth Theatre April 30–August 12, 2018. The production, from Ryan Murphy and veteran Broadway producer David Stone, marks the comedic drama's Broadway premiere.

Each of the four is an alum of Murphy's TV ventures. Parsons, Quinto , Rannells, and Bomer (Ben Reade on Guiding Light) will take on the roles of Michael, Harold, Larry, and Donald, respectively, on stage.

The cast will also include Tony nominee Robin De Jesús as Emory, Brian Hutchison as Alan, Michael Benjamin Washington as Bernard, and Tuc Watkins (David Vickers on One Life to Live) as Hank. The role of Cowboy remains to be cast.

In The Boys in the Band, a group of gay men gather in a New York City apartment for a friend’s birthday party. As the evening continues, the cracks beneath their friendships begin to show, exposing the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.

Ticketing information and complete design team will be announced in the coming weeks.
