|Play Name:||Based on a Totally True Story|
|Description:||Cute, kinda nerdy New Yorker Ethan Keene seems to have it all: a career as a successful comic book writer by day and struggling playwright by night and a great, recently-met boyfriend, with whom he shares a nice Greenwich Village apartment. But Ethan's world is suddenly turned upside down when Mary Ellen Eustice, an assertive Hollywood producer, wants to turn one of Ethan's unproduced plays into a big-budget horror movie – possibly starring Nicole Kidman. With movie fame and fortune (and other Hollywood temptations!) clouding his vision, Ethan struggles to be a loving, supportive partner to his boyfriend Michael Sullivan, a Village Voice reporter and budding novelist. On top of which, Ethan's dad announces that he's leaving Ethan's mom for a married woman – and can he please stay with Ethan and Michael until he finds a new place to live? Hearts are broken, lessons learned, and dreams deferred in this quirky, offbeat romantic comedy of manners.|

About the same odds as today.|
