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?
