Dennis Grimaldi Productions Off Broadway
at TBG Arts Center/Main Stage
It’s in the East Village of NYC where attractive director
Nick Matthews is staging “Alexander Was Great!” an
over-the-top gay musical that portrays the ancient Macedonian conquerer as a royal party animal. Alexander himself – now a diety – is restored to mortal life as a beautiful and gifted actor and sent to Earth to foil Nick’s blasphemous show. Alexander almost succeeds until he discovers that Nick is the reincarnation of his great love, thereby sending what was a campy, backstage musical into a romantic tailspin as immortal love blazes anew.
With Gavin Esham, Jeff Hiller, Jeremiah James,
Charles Logan, Matthew Marks, Eddie Rabon, Craig Ramsey, Brendt Reil, Justin Wilcox.
