On netflix there’s a series of interviews and backstsge footage related to this new BOYS IN THE BAND. Most interesting is Mart Crowley talking about the real-life model for the character Harold....a highly disciplined dancer who was so talented himself that he was adept at teaching non-dancers how to get by. He’s shown partnering Streisand in the “Bride” sequence in the FUNNY GIRL film and in the chorus of waiters in HELLO DOLLY, and it’s explained that he helped her a lot and she found him valuable. He looks like a cross between Michael Bennett and Jerry Robbins.
Oh. And yes.
I have to say this.
Leonard Frey was just a great actor. As Harold and as Motel. Great. Great. Great.
