The Summer Musical
The day gay marriage becomes legal in New York, heteros get a second chance at love.
July 24, 2011, Ranoldo and Clark are tying the knot on the same beach where Gabe and
Anne ditched each other at the altar 22 years earlier. It was a once in a lifetime love,
but they blew it. Both are invited. Will they show up or blow it again? We flashback to
1989 to see how it all went down.
This musical is 2 love stories, one straight, one gay, set against the backdrop of Fire Island's
legendary summer life. A group of thirty somethings share a beach house from Memorial
Day to Labor Day and also share the woes of love in the eighties: infidelity, the AIDS
crisis, the Drag Invasion, breaking up, coming out, struggling to make it in New York
and true love that gets lost in the undertow.
Fire Island is an 8 character ensemble show with a
rotating chorus of New Yorkers and Fire Islanders.
