Why did the musical fall by the wayside? Who knows, but it's fun to have it back especially with interpretations like this. Taking a cue from a "Midsummer Night's Dream" this musical farce dares to ask the question, "What would you do if you discovered a magical love potion?" Especially if you were the only gay kid in town. Most importantly the only gay attending your all-boys school in the middle of your conservative town. Would you turn the whole town gay so they could walk a mile in your shoes....? You just might. (Alexandra Berger)
Tom's directing credits include the side-show inspired short film, The Need, the prolific, award-winning short musical film, Fairies, and his feature directorial debut: the multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed musical, "Were the World Mine." Tom's awards for WTWM include the Heineken Red Star Award and the Scion First-Time Director Award. Tom has worked as the location casting director of "Pirates of the Caribbean II & III, " "The Good Shepherd" and "The Dark Knight." He's a graduate of Northwestern University where he was the recipient of the William Morris Filmmaking Award.
