Making the Boys is a documentary which describes the making of the play and film by the same name, The Boys in The Band. It is a brilliant portrayal of the production of both the groundbreaking film and the play. Making the Boys looks at the huge mainstream reaction to the play and film which opened in 1968. Gay stereotypes abound and tragically, five of the original performers as well as the first director and producer, all eventually died of AIDS long after the play ran. Don’t miss this fascinating part of history! See Playbill’s STAGE TO SCREENS article about it here.
