New this week: Mariah Carey, Gloria Steinem & ‘South Park’

— “The Boys in the Band”: Mart Crowley’s 1968 play has an important place in the history of American theater. One of the first productions to put the lives of gay men front and center, it sparked a sensation by dramatizing the joy and pain of its out-of-the-closet characters over one night in New York, during a party with an uninvited guest. This film, debuting Wednesday on Netflix, is adapted from the starry 2018 Broadway revival, with Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells. (There was also a 1970 movie adaptation by William Friedkin.) As an artifact from a pre-Stonewall past, it takes on an elegiac aura of tribute, with its very successful cast members honoring an earlier, less liberated generation.
