Based on the Tony Award-winning plan of the same name comes Ryan Murphy's latest feature.
Ryan Murphy is arguably one of Hollywood's busiest creators. The producer has had a whirlwind year, with his fingers in as many pies as one man could possibly do. So far this year, he's been involved in the releases of 'Hollywood', 'The Politician' season two, 'A Secret Love', 'Circus of Book's, '9-1-1', the upcoming 'Ratched' with Sarah Paulson, and now he can add 'The Boys in the Band' to his list.
Mart Crowley, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 84, was the creator of the original Broadway show, and Murphy is paying homage to the playwright by creating his own movie version of the hit play. Directed by Joe Mantello, the remake stars Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, and Matt Bomer as part of a group of gay men in 1960's New York who try to win a playful game between themselves. Included in the cast are also Andrew Rannells, Charlie Carver, Robin de Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington, and Tuc Watkins.
The official synopsis for the movie is as follows:
Based on the Tony Award-winning play that changed a generation, 'The Boys in the Band' follows a group of nine gay men who gather for a birthday party in 1968 New York City - only to find the drinks and laughs interrupted when a visitor from the host’s past turns the evening upside down
'The Boys in the Band' will be available to stream on Netflix from September 30.
