Synopsis

Based on out actor, Ryan Spahn's play of the same name and shot entirely on computers, Nora Highland, follows the casting process of a notable gay character in an upcoming Broadway revival. Ripped from reality, the film explores the problematic phenomenon of straight performers being lauded for their work in queer roles (to date 60+ straight/cis actors have been nominated for Oscars for playing queer characters. Only one queer actor has ever been nominated for doing the same). Starring openly gay actor Michael Hsu Rosen (Tiny Pretty Things), Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy), and featuring the voice of contemporary out gay icon Michael Urie (Younger, Ugly Betty)
