I'm deeply sadden to learn of Mr. Mart Crowley's passing I purchased the paper back edition of BOYS IN THE BAND, and loved it !! Then my half brother took me to see the movie, loved it even more!!! What a terrific author/playwriter !! It was a real eye opener for the freshly out of the closet/coming of age crowd. Mr. Crowley will be greatly missed, my condolences to his family and all whose lives he has touched. You will ways be in my prayers, may you rest in GOD's Grace and Peace.
