Composers and their stage works 

Mart Crowley

Born 21st August, 1935, Vicksburg, Mississippi. He attended a Catholic high school in his hometown and graduated from Catholic University of America in 1957 in Washington D.C. In the 1960's, he worked in California for many television companies. Some of them included Martin Manulis Productions and Four Star Television. From 1964 to 1966, he was secretary for actress Natalie Wood. Mart Crowley is primarily known for his landmark play, The Boys in the Band, written in 1968, which deals with male homosexual lifestyles. From almost every critical view, the play was praised by critics and Crowley was acknowledged as a master composer of economical, pungent and bitingly-humorous dialogue.
