RIP, Mart Crowley, author of the groundbreaking gay play The Boys in the Band. He was Natalie Wood's assistant and told me Natalie encouraged him to write the play and abetted its happening. Depicting a hilarious gay party that turns sour, it came out before Stonewall and the faithful and delicious movie version came out after Stonewall. Mart nabbed a Tony when the all-star version came to Broadway in '18 and the movie version of that will come out this year. From everyone who's ever looked like they've been rimming a snowman, cheers to the wonderful Mart.
