The Boys in the Band, directed by William Friedkin (The Exorcist, Cruising) is not about a band, nor is it about boys.
Adapted for the screen from a play by Mart Crowley, it tells a the story of a group of gay men attending a birthday party in pre-Stonewall Manhattan.
Although The Boys in the Band includes a handful of songs, such as "Good Lovin' Ain't Easy to Come By" by Marvin Gaye, "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave" by Martha and the Vandellas, it is otherwise un-scored. On Saturday June 13th, Adam Chad Brody, in collaboration with New Release, will perform a live score to the film along with collaborators. Instrumentation will include synthesizers, voice, recorder, power tools, and various small percussion instruments.
