James Franco Is Making a Musical With College Kids

Casting begins Sunday for Yale University’s April showcase of James Franco Presents, where the actor will work with the Yale Drama Coalition to put together “the story of a girl dealing with the realities of love and life once she realizes she can’t hide behind the wonderful fantasies of fiction. A comedic drama, this musical incorporates film and live musical theater to tell the story of a cast struggling to write and produce a musical that is grounded in high school realities but with a sci-fi twist. Sex, blood, and surrealism to be expected.” Well Mr. Franco did say he might be gay. [Yale Drama Coalition via IvyGate]

  • Paul

    With the variety of projects he has been in and his enthusiasm, it seems he truly appreciates the creative art of acting.
    A refreshing change from the many no-talents that are only seeking the fame and $$$

    @Sam: it’s the THEATER; not a film….Easy mistake to make: they’re using film in the musical (play).
