"I think what I first related to in 'Boys' is the idea that there is no more conventional family as we knew it as children. I was struck by this band of desperately alone people who form a mutual support system. I made a conscious attempt to keep it as multi-ethnic as the society we live in." --Herbert Ross to Newsday, January 31, 1995.
