"Zanna, Don't! A musical fairytale" by Tim Acito and Alexander Dinelaris

Set in a world where homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuals are considered an oddity, the characters in the town Heartsville, USA, are all homosexual — or so we think, until one bold student writes a musical about forbidden heterosexual attraction in the army, and the true, closeted desires of two of the cast members come to the surface. A world much like our own, and the chaos that ensues when people love who they want to, gay or straight.
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Tim Acito
