Allow me to share my newest addiction. It's safe, fun, and the biggest side effect is a potential overdose of laughter.
Drama Queenz is a new webseries by writer/director Dane Joseph. The show is centered around the personal and professional lives of three black gay men living in a cramped apartment in Queens, New York with one common goal;making it big on Broadway. Drama Queenz can currently be seen on YouTube.
Although the series is fictitious, the talented cast of professional New York theater performers undoubtedly have drawn upon their experiences dealing with rejection and success in the highly competitive entertainment industry that brings a unique authenticity to this production.
The show stars Dane Joseph (national tour of Aida), Kristen-Alexzander Griffith (national tours of Rent, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), and Troy Valjean Rucker (national tour of Jesus Christ Superstar).
Blogger and Loldarian.com affiliate Adam Irby has also become a fan of the show.
"It seems like everybody and their cross dressing gay mama is throwing together some YouTube something or other nowadays, unfortunately most of it isn't especially good, well usually it's kinda terrible. I stumbled upon a YouTube show that's actually good for a change, it's funny, it's written well and even the production quality is decent," Irby said in a post on his blog praising Drama Queenz.
Each ten-minute webisode focuses on Jeremiah (Joseph), a dreamer with ridiculously poor audition luck, Davis (Griffith), a perfectionist whose hard work produces uneven results, and Preston (Rucker), a realist whose inhibitions stir-up delightful “drama” for all to enjoy. There's five episodes to date and I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. Get into episodes 1&2 below and spread the word.
