The Boys In The BandA landmark play in gay theatre, Mart Crowley's groundbreaking The Boys In The Band transfers to the West End in 2017, being staged at the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited two-week run. Set in a New York apartment, the seminal piece sees nine men gather for a birthday celebration. Doctor Who actor Mark Gatiss plays Howard, a self-avowed 'pock-marked, Jew fairy' who receives a surprise gift: a beautiful male hustler. When party host Michael - played by Ian Hallard - gets an unwanted gift of his own, the night descends into hilarity and heartbreak.

 

About Vaudeville Theatre

Designed by CJ Phipps, the Vaudeville is the third theatre to be built on this site. The current Vaudeville opened on 23rd February 1926 with a revue called RSVP. One of the theatre's major successes was in 1954 with the musical 'Salad Days', starring Julian Slade and Deborah Reynolds. More about Vaudeville Theatre
