With the world premier of
The Big Gay Musical to be held during Philadelphia's
newly retooled festival scores a big campy coup.
But we only know a pinch about Director
Casper Andreas's lyrical gay tale. And it's this: It's a really gay
musical that reminds us of Jeffrey, in reverse.
After heartbreak, Paul decides to give
up dating for more immediate pursuits. He's working on the new
musical hit Adam & Steve: Just the Way God Made 'Em where
he shares the stage with Eddie.
Eddie's got his own big gay problem:
How do you reconcile being gay with a faith that calls it a sin?
Paul manhunts on the Internet while
Eddie comes out to his Bible-thumping parents, which leads to sassy
musical numbers with bikini clad tap dancing angels and a bunch of
showtunes. The end.
Written and produced by Fred M. Caruso,
the movie hit a blogosphere wave of interest in April when producers
announced gay porn star Brent Corrigan – yes, the star witness of
porn star Harlow Cuadra's murder trial – had joined the cast.
The Big Gay Musical is scheduled
to bring down the curtain of QFest 2009 in Philadelphia on July 20
after 11 dizzying days of screenings at three venues: The Prince
Music Theatre and the Ritz East 1 & 2.
