Richmond Triangle Players returns to its gimmicky roots in New York City's latest extract: Devil Boys From Beyond. Smooth bodied twinks, bitchy drag queens and a knack for camp, this oddball production delights.
A wickedly campy send-up of 1950s sci-fi movies. Part of Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
Two shirtless hunks, four fabulous drag queens, and 90 minutes of high-camp comedy. What more could you want?
Laugh-out-loud show greets the season in a style all its own

Exciting news: Devil Boys From Beyond has been nominated for BEST NEW PLAY among five terrific nominees for the first annual Off Broadway Alliance Awards! And our beloved Everett Quinton is (fittingly) going to receive the "Legend of Off Broadway" award! Congratulations, Buddy, Ken, Everett, and the whole company!
The Off Broadway Alliance has announced the nominees for the 1st Annual Off Broadway Alliance Awards, honoring commercial and not-for-profit productions that opened Off-Broadway between May 1, 2010, and May 1, 2011.
A real nice write-up for a production of DBfB in Richmond, VA. Nice to see the script, and BT's design, live on.
Heavy-duty camp — the Charles Ludlam/Charles Busch kind of thing, the "Vampire Lesbians of Sodom" genre — is hilarious when done well and miserable when done poorly. Fortunately, Richmond Triangle Players' new production of "Devil Boys From Beyond," with James Alexander Bond at the helm, is done to ...

An interview with Devil Boys From Beyond's original creator Buddy Thomas and director (and co-scribe) Kenneth Elliott.
Some great insight into the brilliant mind of playwright Buddy Thomas, and the creation of Devil Boys From Beyond.
Buddy Thomas is a widely produced playwright, and is the author of last year’s completely sold out FringeNYC hit, Devil Boys from Beyond, which starred Everett Quinton. It won the FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Play, and which was nominated for a GLAAD Award for Outstanding New Y
FINAL 2 PERFORMANCES! Tonight and tomorrow at 8. Come see us off before we rocket back into the beyond! Code DBVIP910 for $39.50 tickets, broadwayoffers.com or at the New World Stages box office.
Be sure to swing by Therapy Lounge NYC tonight and catch Robert Berliner in the Broadway Brouhaha with Brandon Cutrell cabaret tonight at 11pm. He'll be singing a couple songs themed to the era of Devil Boys From Beyond, including a guest appearance from "Devil Boys" Jeff Riberdy and Jacques Mitchell!
TimeOut New York's Adam Feldman, theater critic and self-proclaimed "DEVIL's advocate from the start," makes Devil Boys From Beyond's off-Broadway swan song a (bittersweet) pick of the week.
Devil Boys from Beyond: You have just one more week to catch Buddy Thomas's sci-fi spoof at New World Stages, a tasty slice of classic queer comedy served up by a masterful cast of gay farceurs (led by the supreme Everett Quinton).... Hell will freeze over on Saturday, December 4, so flame it up whi...
"...the show will indeed shutter on Saturday, December 4. This is a real shame, because Devil Boys is not only an escapist treat but also a masterful illustration of classic queer comedy. If the show's tremendous Everett Quinton were doing the same level of character clowning in some visiting Italian commedia troupe, there would be lines around Lincoln Center to see him."
Zero Hour has had a solid run; Devil Boys from Beyond deserved one as well. For what these two very different shows have in common is that they are superb examples of their kind. Critics have noticed: On the StageGrade critical aggregation site, Zero Hour has the second-highest median rating of all ...
Just 6 chances left to catch our "honey of a laff-riot" (@broadwayworld) before we're beamed back to outer space! Tonight @ 8, tomorrow (Sunday) @ 7:30, and Wed-Sat @ 8pm. "AMAZINGLY funny. Take advantage while you can... get to DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND right now!" - BroadwayRadio
Check out the classic DEVIL BOY, "Klaatu" (Michael Rennie), addressing planet Earth (a la Jacques Mitchell's "Tattoo") in The Day the Earth Stood Still. And catch the original "Gort" -- namesake of Jeff Riberdy's Plutopian hunk -- in the background!
In the movie, The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Klaatu (Michael Rennie) gives a warning to the human race about aggression.
If you've seen Devil Boys From Beyond and wondered what inspired Gregory Graham (Robert Berliner)'s accent -- or his alcohol-soaked storyline, this clip from Billy Wilder's 1945 Best Picture winner "The Lost Weekend" (starring Oscar winner Ray Milland) may shed some light. Rent it, and come see us again ;) Happy Friday!
NYT's Charles Isherwood: "[I] would be happy to hear about under-sung productions I might still be able to catch." (Ooh. That's us!) Isherwood laments this season's shortage of "evenings that leave you dizzy with pleasure at having witnessed some kind of theatrical magic." Do you think DEVIL BOYS qualifies? Leave a comment at the bottom of the article! Only 7 chances left to experience "drag heaven on earth!"
NYT's Charles Isherwood: "[I] would be happy to hear about under-sung productions I might still be able to catch." Let's tell him about DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND!
We're thankful for the chance to make you laugh...and thankful that (more often than not) you do! Happy Thanksgiving.from all of us at DBfB.
Fans, check your Facebook inbox under "updates" for an important message from Robert Berliner and the DEVIL BOYS company. Thanks!
Blast from the past: DBfB's Paul Pecorino and Chris Dell'Armo show off their considerable character chops in a preview for their 2007 revival of Charles Ludlam and Everett Quinton's two-actor tour de force, "The Mystery of Irma Vep." This is the project that introduced MadCaP Productions to Everett Quinton, laying the groundwork for DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND.
www.barryzshow.com Charles Ludlam's acclaimed play is a howling tribute to gothic horror movies, involving mystery and intrigue, replete with vampires, werewolves and mummies. The play liberally borrows from such melodramatic film classics as "Wuthering Heights," "The Mummy's Curse" and Alfred Hitc...
Check out the 24 minute mark! Michael Portantiere: DBfB is "Fantastic! A terrifically campy throwback... [An] incredibly funny event that everyone should see. I highly, highly recommend it." Matthew Murray: DBfB is "a horrendously funny show! The portrayals are absolutely wonderful. Really terrific, very well done. AMAZINGLY funny. Take advantage while you can... get to DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND at New World Stages right now!"
Panel: James Marino, Matthew Murray, Michael Portantiere
Bells Are Ringing,
Devil Boys From Beyond... and others
The "quite wonderful" Adam Feldman of TimeOut New York plays "DEVIL's advocate." Please, fans and friends of the show, share this extraordinary piece with everyone you can! Post it to your profile, send it to friends.... we need all the help we can get. THANK YOU!
If you're in New York for Thanksgiving week, try to make it out to one of the shows we can most be thankful for: The uproariously campy sci-fi spoof "Devil Boys from Beyond." By all means, go! Turn off your brain and let yourself be dragged in tow by this show's masters of frivolity—and masters they...
EARTHLINGS! If you want our "deliriously campy" (TimeOut) show to remain on this planet, act fast! Four nights this week: Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun. Fill New World Stages, pack the house, so our evil alien overlords don't banish us back to Pluto!!! (Seriously.) Use code *DBVIP910* at broadwayoffers.com or the NWS box office for $39.50 tickets. Join the invasion... before it's too late!!!
Wow. We're getting good press about all the good press we're getting.... Thanks, StageGrade!
The highs and lows were extreme this week on StageGrade. It began with... good news (A- for the gay sci-fi romp Devil Boys from Beyond, B+ for the Adam Rapp/Amoralists team-up Ghosts in the Cottonwoods), not such good news (B- for Heidi Schreck's cross-cultural drama There Are No More Big Secrets, C...
14 reviews in (not including the Daily News' print-only rave), and our StageGrade composite rating is "A-"! Not too shabby!
Who would've predicted in the 1980s that we'd have Off Broadway commercial productions of self-conscious tributes to cutting edge queer theatre? David Barbour at Lighting & Sound America sums up the critical consensus when he notes that although Devil Boys From Beyond is a nostalgic throwback to the...
Pg 48 in Friday's Daily News: "Be afraid, be very afraid. And be ready to laugh!"
Page C4 of today's NEW YORK TIMES: "'Devil Boys From Beyond' is a riot!" Everett Quinton is "heaven on earth... worth the price of admission alone." Kudos to the cast, crew, and artistic staff, especially Gail Baldoni, whose extraordinary costumes are prominently lauded in the glowing write-up. Congrats, all!
“Devil Boys From Beyond,” with Everett Quinton, is a campy all-male spoof of 1950s sci-fi B-movies.
A RAVE! "Go see Devil Boys from Beyond while you can! While it would not surprise me in the least if it went on to a longer commercial run, if you like well-done comedy—and/or shirtless men from outer space—get to New World Stages by December 30th."
What's funnier than a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist investigating reports of flying saucers in the mysterious swamplands of Lizard Lick, Florida—the hickest hick-town in all of America? Not much! Unless, perhaps, you cast a man in drag, add a boozing ex-husband, a nemesis/rival reporter, and Eve...
A really nice write-up. "Run to New World Stages and laugh your ass off."
BOTTOM LINE: This raucous, campy laughfest is consistently hilarious, and also has a heartfelt message of acceptance and inclusion.

On November 13, 2010, Devil Boys from Beyond opened off-Broadway. , Aliens, reporters and house fraus, oh my! The cast of Devil Boys from Beyond take an opening night bow.
A rave! Cast is "outstanding across the board": Paul Pecorino is a "particular standout," Chris Dell'Armo an "acidic delight," Robert Berliner is "just right," and Everett Equality Quinton is "predictable perfection."
Buddy Thomas & Kenneth Elliott's story is "substantial;" design team lauded, including Gail Baldoni's "glimmeringly silly" costumes. "But it’s the execution that matters most, and it’s top-notch. Elliott has directed with razor sharpness."
You might think twice about camping in November if an actual tent were involved, but New York is offering two extremely compelling reasons for pursuing the theatrical kind. The first is Charles Busch’s The Divine Sister, which opened in September.... The second, which just opened at New World Stages...
