Gay Bomb: the Musical!

Synopsis:
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 been 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 troops only hope for an easy victory. But nothing goes according to plan. 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.
