High School Musical meets Dead Poets Society meets Rocky Horror Picture show. Ranked #8 on AfterElton.com and #9 among MoHos, this is a very enjoyable show and belies one of my Obvious Gay Traits (OGTs), a love for musicals.
A story about an openly gay high school senior at an all boys' school who is in love with the apparently straight school jock. He is cast as Puck in the Senior play, William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While practicing for the play, he discovers the secret formula for a love potion and sets out to make the school jock fall in love with him. Things soon get out of hand as he turns the whole town homosexual. The movie takes on the plot of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the conclusion of the high school play and the movie occurring simultaneously. It is a clever gay twist on a timeless story. The music was catchy and the singing amazing. Costuming was directly out of the counter-culture, but endearing nonetheless. Two thumbs up, five stars, etc., etc. Available on Netflix Watch it Now.
