The May 12 evening performance of the Broadway revival of The Boys in the Band, Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking 1968 play, was canceled due to a minor injury sustained by one of the cast members.

Performances will resume Monday night. Those with tickets to the canceled performance should contact their point-of-purchase for refund and exchange information.

Previews for the limited engagement began April 30 at the Booth Theatre. Tony winner Joe Mantello directs a cast that includes Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, and Matt Bomer.

Produced by Ryan Murphy and David Stone, the production will officially open May 31 and is scheduled to run through August 12.

Parsons (The Normal Heart), Quinto (American Horror Story), Rannells (The New Normal), and Bomer (The Normal Heart, AHS) take on the roles of Michael, Harold, Larry, and Donald, respectively. Each of the four is an alum of Murphy's TV ventures.

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.

In The Boys in the Band, a group of gay men gather in a New York City apartment for a friend’s birthday party in the late 1960s. As the evening continues, the cracks beneath their friendships begin to show, exposing the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity.

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