Transcript for Zachary Quinto on Broadway’s shutdown until 2021
it very well. You play it very well, too, but you know what? I'm the only one who's better at it than you are, I can beat you at it, so don't push me. I'm warning you. So creepy. That's actually how she introduced herself to me. I was actually -- get out of my head. I was going to say that T.J. Just said to me yesterday. That was a scene from the "Boys in the band." Based on the revival of the Broadway play. Joining us now one of the stars of the film and Broadway version is incredibly talented Zachary Quinto, Zachary, thank you so much for being with us today. And I know that we all felt so much pain earlier this month when it was announced that Broadway's shut down will extend through may of next year, Broadway is such a big part of your life, talk about your feelings. It's awful. I mean, I think the -- the worst cultural impact of the pandemic has certainly been on the theater in America and around the world and at a time when I think theater could serve such a vital part of our social discourse. "Boys in the band," based on the revival of the prodway play, it's going to feel like that when everyone gets back to work. We're all getting the band back together, so about this particular experience for you, to get the same crew together from the play that you were all able to get together for the film, what was that experience like? Yeah, so unusual. It almost never happens. I don't think any of us had an experience like that doing a play for months on Broadway, having this incredibly bonding and deep experience sharing the story with audiences every night, and then going away from it for a year and coming back together with the same company, so there was this -- this incredible familiarity, trust and real celebration. Zachary Quinto, thank you so much for joining us. We certainly appreciate it. We want to tell everyone to check out the boys in the band it's streaming now on Netflix.
