What is Gayland?

Gayland is a new satirical musical romantic comedy that’s currently in development.

What is Gayland about?

Gayland is the story of a forbidden love, set in alternate universe where almost everyone is gay, and the few marginalized breeders have to fight for their rights. Edgy, funny, and sweet, Gayland breaks new ground with love songs like “I Wanna See Your O Face.”

What is the next milestone for Gayland?

The creators are working towards a Broadway production. Gayland has had several  table reads in New York, at the the York Theatre and other venues, and has developed a stellar cast and music director.

We recently took the cast, band, and music director into Yellow Sound Lab and Log Cabin studios in New York to capture the new music we’ve been working on over the last year. Our plan is to begin shopping the script, score, and recordings early in 2018. Say tuned!

Make sure you hear about the next performance!

  1. Wow, haven’t heard “Sensitive Me” before. What a perfect send up of the clods who say, “I don’t hate gay people, I just call things “gay” when I don’t like them.”

  2. Wow, the new version of “I’m a Real Man” is so unexpected as a Gaige number! What made you decide to do that?

  3. Just re-listened and still love the ironic “Americanism” of your sound, always brings to mind my favorites, Thomson (Randall and Virgil), Carter, and Jack Beeson, etc. And, our hymnal tradition.

  4. Hey, just got the new Mp3s! Wow, total first act redo. Boy, the bit about corporate marriage is right on point. ; )

    1. The real question is: Can a cabbage have a fiduciary responsibility for a worm? Why isn’t SCOTUS focussed on things that MATTER?
