The production, directed by Joe Mantello, boasts a cast that includes Jim Parsons as Michael, Zachary Quinto as Harold, Andrew Rannells as Larry, and Matt Bomer as Donald. The cast also includes Tony nominee Robin De Jesús as Emory, Brian Hutchison as Alan, Michael Benjamin Washington as Bernard, Tuc Watkins as Hank, and Charlie Carver as Cowboy.

The Ryan Murphy and David Stone-produced engagement was the first production to open in the 2018–2019 season, and through surpassing its gross potential in most weeks, the first to recoup.

The play follows a group of gay men who convene in a New York City apartment for a friend’s birthday party. As the evening continues, the cracks beneath their friendships begin to show, exposing the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.

The staging features sets and costumes by David Zinn, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, and sound design by Leon Rothenberg.
