  Press Releases below:  MAKING THE BOYS  |  LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN  
  A film by Crayton Robey  

Before Prop 8, “Will & Grace”, Ellen, AIDS, Gay Pride Events or The Stonewall Uprising, Mart Crowley’s stage play “The Boys in the Band” changed everything as the first ever gay play to successfully reach a mainstream audience.

Crayton Robey’s MAKING THE BOYS explores the enduring legacy of the play and subsequent Hollywood movie. Beloved by some for breaking new ground and condemned by others for reinforcing gay stereotypes, “The Boys in the Band” sparked heated controversy that endures to this day.

Featuring interviews with its author Mart Crowley, surviving cast members, and a who’s who of Gay icons from stage and screen, this enjoyable documentary captures the behind-the-scenes drama and lasting legacy of this cultural milestone.

With Edward Albee, Mart Crowley, Dominick Dunne, William Friedkin, Carson Kressley, Tony Kushner, Terrence McNally, Robert Wagner and more.

From the award-winning director of Page One: Inside The New York Times & Eat This New York

LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN is an intimate portrait of Le Cirque founder Sirio Maccioni and his three sons – Mauro, Marco and Mario – to whom he will one day leave his formidable cultural and culinary legacy. Director Andrew Rossi not only gains unbelievable access to the larger-than-life Maccioni family but also catches the family at a dramatic transition: the closing of Le Cirque in 2004, its celebrated re-opening two years later followed by the nerve-wracking wait for New York’s restaurant critics to weigh in on their new incarnation.

Not only is LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN a must-see for anyone who is passionate about food and dining, but it shows us a family embroiled in the age-old struggle between fathers, sons, tradition and change - which, for the family behind Le Cirque, means the fate of one of New York’s most treasured institutions hangs in the balance. LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN is a fascinating portrait of a family business caught in the world’s spotlight.
