“One of New York’s gayest shows!  So good.  Genuinely funny.  Clever.  Sassy.

After playing to packed houses over Pride weekend, it should return soon.”

BOYS WILL BE BOYS — An OUT-rageous New Musical Revue was a smash when it premiered at the legendary Duplex Cabaret Theatre. It played to packed houses and overwhelming audience response.  The show was hailed for being “hysterical,” “incredibly witty,” “some of the funniest writing on any New York stage.” Peter Filichia of  TheaterMania.com raved, “The song ‘Giant’ is probably the best song I’ve heard by anyone all year.”  BOYS was so successful that, after its premiere run, it was invited back — by popular demand — for a return engagement in honor of Gay Pride.

   Since then, BOYS WILL BE BOYS has been seen in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland!


Poor Ishmael Gonzalez suffers from Gay Attention Deficit Disorder, a condition that renders some gay men (particularly under the age of 50) unable to stay focused on any trend for more than a few weeks. But, before you can say “Barney’s Warehouse Sale,” five of Ish’s friends skip to the rescue with a delicious (and disastrous) musical “fun-raiser” to benefit The Ishmael Gonzalez Fund to Fight Gay-D.D. In this hilarious, intimate evening, the performers expose themselves (sorta) and their views on love won, lost and borrowed(!).

BOYS WILL BE BOYS utilizes a unit set, five performers and one musician.
