Zachary Quinto on why a cast of “accomplished, successful, authentic gay men” is relevant

“I’ve worked really hard to carve out a career that is separate from my identity as a gay man. And there was a part of me that was just like, I want to go in a different direction. I think what this production does is go in the face of how far we’ve come, and holds a mirror up to the audience and asks them to evaluate how far we still have to go. It’s incredibly relevant that a cast of accomplished, successful, authentic gay men are standing up and giving this seminal work a Broadway production. We’ve all been able to build diverse and satisfying careers for ourselves. The original cast of the play really struggled.”Zachary Quinto speaking to Vulture about The Boys in the Band, currently running on Broadway at the Booth Theater. The cast also includes out actors Jim Parsons, Andrew Rannells and Matt Bomer
