On this date the film-adaptation of Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking gay play, THE BOYS IN THE BAND, premiered in New York City. A new documentary, Making The Boys about the making of this play and Mart Crowley’s career is a wonderful appraisal of this groundbreaking play, often misunderstood in today’s more liberated mentality.  If you are one of those who found The Boys in The Band, at best, dated and at worst slightly embarrassing, hie thee to Netflix and rent this documentary. It is enlightening.
