Equality

Lucy, I’m Homo!

Brace yourselves, kids. My lacquered hands have uncovered the blurb for the gayest show since Xanadu. It’s called DANCE WITH ME and the official description goes like so:

“Starring Jai Rodriguez (Rent, Queer Eye, The Producers) in a breakout performance, Jim J. Bullock (Hairspray, Too Close for Comfort), and more TBA. Escaping the bloodshed of his native island, a young Cuban boy sets sail on a turbulent journey that leads him all the way to Hollywood and into the arms of a fiery, redheaded movie star named Lucille Ball. Book, music & lyrics by Robert Bartley & Danny Whitman. July 10-12, 8pm; July 13, 4pm. For tickets go to www.DanceWithMeTheMusical.com.”

Why am I feeling as if Nathan Lane and Faith Prince should pop their heads in as the Mertzes? And as if the real title of this should have been I Had a Ball?
