I've been out of town for the last week and half working on a project. While away, I ended up taking that time off from looking at blogs. A brief break. This afternoon I decided to do a little peaking around and the first story I read was a HUGE welcome back to the blog-o-sphere. Turns out Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig will be co-starring in a Broadway play titled A Steady Rain as cops who moonlight as gay strippers. Be still my beating nightstick.
Hugh Jackman plays Jake, a conflicted Irish-Catholic from a blue-collar family who was raised to believe that the only thing worse than being gay is being a gay stripper. His cop partner John, played by Daniel Craig, is a wolf-eyed gym-built stud who loves being a cop and being a gay stripper with equal passion. Both men are clueless of each other's shared passion for shaking their stuff in front of male audiences while wearing next to nothing. They live guilt-ridden existences, afraid to let anyone in on their well kept secret: cops by day, gay strippers by night. Until one fateful evening when both men answered a Craiglist ad looking for hung dancers who could fill out a g-string and shake their asses at a birthday party for closeted actor Mario Lopez. Arriving separately, both Jake and John pressed their big, fat cocks into banana hammocks and awaited their cue: The Black Eyed Pea's "Let's Get It Started In Here." As that song began, the two men grinded their way across the room until they locked eyes. That was it. Their secret was out. No more shame. No more hidden lives. Just g-strings and some baby oil. And acceptance.
Ok, Ok.... that's all made up. Just my wishful thinking. Please let me have that. Here's my fictional Playbill for their upcoming show.
Wouldn't you hire them for your birthday party? Here's the color version of the above image.
I'll be the first in line to buy a ticket for A Steady Rain! I'm hoping it's The Full Monty meets Equus meets Chippendales. That's a Broadway show sure to please.
