In an upscale Manhattan apartment, nine men gather for a birthday party and indulge in an evening of brittle banter and social one-upsmanship. The presence of two strangers — a good-looking "birthday present" hustler plus an unexpected drop-in from the host's past — fuels an escalating, competitive game of Truth, culminating in confession, exposure and breakdown.

A landmark work in the canon of gay theater, The Boys in the Band offers a view of the subculture at a time when it was highly repressed and could only unfold in private.

Directed by Stuart Purdy, the cast includes Travis Springfield, Adam Richardson, Jay Menchaca, Bob Galley, Tad Howington, Jarred Tettey, L. Robert Westeen, Louis Crespo and Jake Bevill.
