Brokeback Mountain: The Musical

Although it didn’t seem possible for Brokeback Mountain to get gay-er, the handsome homosexual cowboys are hitting Broadway! The New York Opera Company has commissioned a work based on Annie Proulx’s short story, the same one that was adapted for the Oscar-winning flick. While back in 2005, Nathan Lane parodied the musical concept on Letterman (check out the vid), we are willing to bet $20 bucks on Clay Aiken’s dreams of being cast in this production. With live singing cowboys ropin’ and gropin’ each other, the new opera is sure to be a crowd pleasing hit for cowpokes and their fag hags alike — The Frisky’s Catherine and Amelia are already chompin’ at the bit to see some chaps in action. But they’ll have to wait patiently until the 2013 season…..[Playbill]
