The story is about Peter, a sensitive nice guy and his secret boyfriend Jason, the popular golden boy, who is terrified of being outed, while dealing with popular girl Ivy who wants him, arch-rival Matt who wants Ivy, and his unappreciated twin sister Nadia who is Ivy's rival.
There is a play within the play - a school production of Romeo and Juliet, creating an interesting juxtaposition of the star-crossed lovers in and out of the play.
Variety magazine describes it as “a magnificent, totally original, contemporary musical extravaganza that explores the schism between youthful passion and theological dogma.”
This musical will appeal to fans of musicals such as "Spring Awakening" and "Rent", as well as TV shows like "Glee" and "13 Reasons Why"
