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 world conquerer as a royal party animal. Alexander himself - now a deity - 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. A Kiss from Alexander features a book and lyrics by Stephan DeGhelder and music by Brad Simmons. For a complete list of shows in Gayfest NYC, click here.
