Filming Begins on New Feature Film BIG GAY MUSICAL Featuring Broadway Stars
Starting October 24th, 2008 filming will commence on a new feature musical film "Big Gay Musical".
Paul & Eddie have just begun previews for the new Off-Broadway musical Adam & Steve Just the Way God Made 'Em. Their lives strangely mirror the characters they are playing; Paul is looking for the perfect man & Eddie is dealing with how his sexuality & faith can mix. After yet another disastrous dating experience, Paul has an epiphany. He is done dating & just wants to be a slut like the sexy chorus boys that share his dressing room.
Eddie has to tell his parents that he's gay & is starring in a show that calls the bible the "Breeder's Informational Book of Living Examples." Eddie comes out to his family & Paul goes on the internet. Eddie's parents are destroyed by the news & Paul can't even have a good one-night stand. But after musical numbers with scantly clad tap dancing angels, a retelling of Genesis, tele-evangelists, a camp that attempts to turn gay kids straight & a bunch of showtunes, everyone realizes that life gets better once they accept who they really are: just the way God made 'em!
