Virtual Theatre Today: Wednesday, September 30- with John Lloyd Young, THE BOYS IN THE BAND, and More!

10:00 AM

The Boys in the Band on Netflix - Mart Crowley's groundbreaking 1968 play, The Boys in the Band, centers on a group of gay men who gather in a NYC apartment for a friend's birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault-lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity. A true theatrical game-changer, The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution by putting gay men's lives onstage -- unapologetically and without judgement - in a world that was not yet willing to fully accept them. Reprising their roles from the 2018 Broadway production are Matt Bomer (White Collar), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Zachary Quinto (Heroes), Andrew Rannells (Girls), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf), Brian Hutchison (Madam Secretary), Michael Benjamin Washington (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Robin de Jesús (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), and Tuc Watkins (Desperate Housewives) will all reprise their roles from the 2018 Broadway production for the Netflix film. click here

The Glorias on Prime Video - Journalist, fighter, and feminist Gloria Steinem is an indelible icon known for her world-shaping activism, her guidance of the revolutionary women's movement, and her writing that has impacted generations. In this nontraditional biopic, against the backdrop of a lonely bus on an open highway, five Glorias trace Steinem's influential journey to prominence-from her time in India as a young woman, to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York, to her role in the rise of the women's rights movement in the 1960s and beyond. In her hotly anticipated new film, Julie Taymor brings her signature inventiveness and audacity to craft a complex tapestry of one of the most iconic and legendary figures of modern history, based on Steinem's own memoir My Life on the Road. Remarkable performances by Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander steer an engaging cast with strong supporting turns from Janelle Monáe and Bette Midler. Taymor makes her own rules in this dazzling ode to self-reflection, exploring the importance of forging your own path and embracing the challenge of the open road. click here

INTERNATIONAL VOICES PROJECT VIRTUAL FESTIVAL: "Decomposed Theatre" - Imagine the fragments of a shattered mirror. Once upon a time, the mirror was perfectly whole, it reflected the heavens, the world, the souls of us all. And then it shattered, no one knows when, why, or how. What we do know is that we probably have all of its parts, and that they still hold the spirit and atmosphere of the original whole. The challenge before us now is to reconstruct that original. But beware that this may prove to be impossible, because no one has ever seen the mirror in its complete state, no one even knows what it looked like. Maybe even a shard or two are missing . . .Still, it promises to be a fascinating journey because each time we impose an order on the pieces, we create something, a mirror that reflects so many surprises despite its imperfections. click here
