Tell us about Broadway BoyZ.

Broadway Boyz is a new show – we’re still writing it, and always will be. It tells our story, the story of three gay boys who dream[ed?] of Broadway, only to awaken to the darker, harsher reality of show biz.

We hope to talk, sing, and dance our way through first love, heartbreak, trauma, and success. This is a one-hour confessional about our love for musical theatre; our struggles in a hetero-celebrating industry; and our journey towards simply being fabulous.

Describe your show in three words.

Honest. Quick-witted. Joyous.

Why should someone come see your show?

The charming BBz will introduce a fun, new, all-original score, a tough-love-song to musical theatre about gateway divas, systemic homophobia, and doing what you love.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Fosse Boy (but you’ve never seen them because they never made it to print).

If you could see only one show at the Halifax Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
