Last week previews began for the Broadway debut of the landmark gay play “The Boys in the Band” with a shining all-star cast worthy of the fifty year journey it took to get from Greenwich Village to the silver screen to the Great White Way.
By now the story of the “little play that did” going from five performances to an overnight sensation running more than 1000 is well known. What is not so well know is the story of playwright, Mart Crowley himself and how his “Boys” with their honest, unvarnished, vibrant, and painful pre-Stonewall lives came to be.
CBS’s Sunday Morning met up with Crowley and the Broadway cast for this report.
