The Boys in the Band (Original Version)

The Boys in the Band (Original Version)

By Mart Crowley

Directed by E. Dale Smith-Gallo

In 1968 playwright Mart Crowley did the unthinkable. He penned a brash, unapologetically gay story in pre-Stonewall America. And while the fear and self-loathing brought on by living a publicly-closeted existence pervade this tale of nine men at a gin-soaked birthday party gone awry, so too do whips of defiance and a need to live truthfully– no matter the cost. Studio Players is proud to salute 50 Years of Pride by revisiting this pivotal work of gay theatre that has often been cited as one of the inciting forces behind the beginning of the LGBTQ fight for equality.

Letter: Inspired by her dog, Girl Scout Teaches Others About Pet Adoption

August 14, 2019

Why not consider adoption when seeking a pet? I’ve always been surprised by how many people don’t see local shelters as an option, as I knew that there were many dogs in shelters who need a home, and breeders don't always treat their dogs humanely. When I question my friends, these are the most common reasons as to why they didn't adopt: “We really wanted a specific ...
