The party-set 1968 work will be staged as a site-specific environmental production in the Penthouse level of the 37 West 26th Street apartment building. Transport Group artistic director Jack Cummings III directs a cast featuring Jonathan Hammond as Michael, Christopher Innvar as Larry, Kevin Isola as Alan, Jon Levenson as Harold, Kevyn Morrow as Bernard, Graham Rowat as Hank, Aaron Sharff as Cowboy, John Wellmann as Emory and Nick Westrate as Donald.
"Set during Harold's 32nd birthday party," according to Transport Group, "The Boys in the Band begins as a hilarious and spirited celebration among friends until unexpected guests and games reveal tensions that unravel these men's souls. The party moves to a heart-wrenching, and climactic end."
Here is a look at the afternoon meet and greet held at Chelsea Studios:
