The Big Gay Musical Begins Filming

It isn't every day that you hear about a project like The Big Gay Musical being filmed, but that's what was announced yesterday via email from publicist Penny Landau. Not a bad cast at all (I'm being understated here -- see below), and obviously this is a cute idea for a piece in any medium.

Filming starts on October 24, 2008 on the new feature film



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!

Written & produced by Fred M. Caruso & directed by Casper Andreas, The Big Gay Musical features the choreography of Shea Sullivan, the songs of Rick Crom, the costumes of Tony Nominee Bobby Pearce, the cinematography of Jon Fordham, the art direction of Jason Courson, the hair & makeup of Chad Hayduk & the musical direction of Jack Aaronson.

And the cast of The Big Gay Musical...

Liz McCartney (Taboo, South Pacific), Jim Newman (Curtains, Minnelli on Minnelli), Joey Dudding (A Chorus Line, La Cage), Marty Thomas (Xanadu, Wicked, The Secret Garden), Andre Ward (Xanadu, Saturday Night Fever), Daniel Robinson (Hairspray), Jeff Metzler (Mary Poppins), Brian Spitulnik (Chicago), Josh Cruz (Wig Out), Celina Carvajal (Tarzan & Reality TV show “The Search of Elle Woods”) & Steve Hayes, one of the stars of the mega-hit Gay film Trick.

The Big Gay Scam!

The Cast and Crew never got paid, and the writer/producer is MIA...
