“LET’S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT…YOU”!
In 2008, the Reverend Vernon Jackson, co-founder (with God) of RBN: Religious Broadcasting Network, held a telethon in Lynchburg Virginia to raise money to turn as many homosexuals straight by the rapture, or the 2014 winter Olympics whichever came first. He raised forty million dollars. But after the election of Donald Trump and other political absurdities in the country, he is very … Very … VERY sorry. Find out why in this tart topical musical.
Michael DiGaetano is a celebrity.
He spent twenty-five years in Los Angeles writing and producing TV and movies, including the film, Houseguest, starring Sinbad and Phil Hartman, and the TV remakes of Ferris Bueller and Get Smart. He realized just how much he missed NYC and his first love, live theatre, so here he is… musical in hand.
ANOTHER brilliant musical … again at the Midtown International. I gotta get a season ticket !
