The Boys in the Band has added a special midnight performance to benefit the Actors Fund. The performance will be held on Thursday, July 26, at 11:59pm. Joe Mantello directs the production, running through August 11 at the Booth Theatre.

Featured in the cast are Jim Parsons (Michael), Zachary Quinto (Harold), Matt Bomer (Donald), Andrew Rannells (Larry), Charlie Carver (Cowboy), Robin De Jesús (Emory), Brian Hutchison (Alan), Michael Benjamin Washington (Bernard), and Tuc Watkins (Hank).

Mart Crowley's 1968 comic drama 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.

The Boys in the Band is produced on Broadway by Ryan Murphy and David Stone.
