GAY BOMB is a musical comedy inspired by the real life plans of the U.S. military to build a bomb that would make their enemies gay.
Thanks all, for helping us reach our original goal!!! We're still trying to raise a little more, as we now expect production costs to be around $6,500 by the end of our run. So we hope you'll find some of our reward goodies worth making a pledge!
Premiering at the Magnet Theater on May 4th, GAY BOMB: THE MUSICAL! is a satirical romp inspired by the REAL-LIFE plans of the U.S. military to build a bomb that turns enemy armies gay (HONEST!).
President-elect Felching has swept into office on his promise to defend the United States from the homosexual and Mooslem threats. Sometimes, however, campaign promises can prove difficult to fulfill. Faced with a new Middle Eastern conflict, and his military stretched thin, the President must overcome his moral objections and embrace a controversial chemical weapon that can turn the enemy gay. Battling an effeminate army seems to be his depleted troop's only hope for an easy victory.
GAY BOMB: THE MUSICAL! is a cautionary tale that takes the twisted logic of the extreme American right to Strangelovian conclusions--skewering prejudice, power, and paranoia along the way. The show leaves no stereotype unscathed. The original Off-Off Broadway spectacular features some of New York's top performing improvisers.
GAY BOMB: THE MUSICAL! runs at the Magnet Theater (254 W 29th Street) on select Fridays in May and June, at 8:30pm. Directed by Michael Martin, with music by Frank Spitznagel, and book and lyrics by Chris Friden and Steve Whyte. Choreography by Anna Farkas. Starring: Andrew Fafoutakis, Dreagn Foltz, Ben Jones, Michael Lutton, Jen Sanders, TJ Mannix, Oscar Montoya, Dave Tomczak, and Woody Fu.
GAY BOMB: THE MUSICAL! seeks funding for costumes, sets, rehearsal space, publicity and promotion, printing, a bidet, crew, musicians, and debts occurred for costs related to the above. Almost everyone involved is working on this project for free. If we exceed our goal, it would be nice to pass along some token payment to the cast and crew for the time, sweat, and immeasurable talent that they've provided.
