'The Boys in the Band': A Look at the Groundbreaking Story

In 2018, The Boys in the Band returned to the stage as a Broadway show, 50 years after it first debuted. Now, it's taking on a whole new medium, as a Netflix film. The film bringing back the beloved Broadway cast, which includes Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Andrew Rannells, Zachary Quinto and many, many more. The movie is even directed by Joe Mantello and produced by Ryan Murphy.


The Boys in the Band follows a group of nine gay men in New York City, which was a groundbreaking storyline for the time of its initial debut. Mart Crawley, the late playwright of the story, said:

"When I started to write, I had been so advised by so many people in positions of authority not to go there."

But Mart decided to "go there" anyway, and ultimately, paved the way for countless people to follow.

Jim Parsons was just one of the many affected by the moving story. He said:

"It was only once we were doing the play that I realized how many people in my life I knew that this had been such an important part of their own coming to terms with their sexuality."

Tuc Watkins chimed in and shared:

"It's a real reminder to me that any freedom or openness I feel that I can live as a gay man is because of the people who came before."

Little People, Big World

Youtube

Kicking off this week's Reality Reel, TLC's Little People, Big World is preparing to say goodbye to its latest season and part of the family's past. The show, which follows the Roloffs as they upkeep their family farm while navigating life at four feet tall, has been airing since 2006.

Over fourteen years later, the family is wrapping up on season 21.

This ending of a season is especially bittersweet as the Roloffs are packing up to move and saying goodbye to the farm and family home.

Amy Rollof told us how hard it has been to make the adjustment.

"You sometimes don't think that you can get through it. And moving...I was like "where am I gonna go?" Like, my life is forever changing."

She went on to reveal the hardest part of it all...

"It's always been hard for me to watch my own show. To tell you the truth that is the hardest thing about doing this show for so many years."

Counting down to the season finale, Amy has been doing Instagram live sessions where she answers fans questions while sharing some favorite recipes. She currently runs her own shop called "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen" where she sells home goods, kitchen supplies, apparel and more.

The trailer is as awkward as it sounds. On this new show, viewers follow a few couples across the country who bud heads over who the most important woman is in a relationship. While the girlfriends are certain their priorities should come first, their boyfriends are convinced that mother knows best.

We talked to just one of the couples, Emily and Shekeb, ahead of the season premiere.

Explaining the situation, Emily said:

"I'm never, you know, prioritized in his life. You know...in my eyes, I wanna be number one."

Shekeb gave his response:

"It's not so bad though. I'm trying to keep the balance."

We hope to see the two find some middle ground on the show!
