THE BOYS IN THE BAND

FEATURE NARRATIVE 118 Minutes World Premiere Revival Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE BOYS IN THE BAND

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we are pleased to present two programs celebrating the seminal film The Boys in the Band, a cultural watershed that still resonates today. Join us for a free screening of the 1970 film—directed by William Friedkin and written by Mart Crowley, based on his groundbreaking play that debuted one year before Stonewall. Crowley will be present at this special screening. (The Boys in the Band print courtesy of CBS Broadcasting, Inc.)

We also welcome to the Festival a special work-in-progress version of Making the Boys, directed by Crayton Robey. This documentary features the many people involved with the original stage play and film, including Crowley and Dominick Dunne, as well as Edward Albee, Robert Wagner, and Paul Rudnick. After that screening there will be a discussion moderated by Tony Award-winning producer and film documentarian Dori Berinstein with director Crayton Robey, playwright/screenwriter Mart Crowley, Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, actor Laurence Luckinbill, and other special guests.
