GOODBYE CONTINENTAL AIRLINES AND THE BEAUTIFULLY BALD BROOKLYN BOYS CHOIR



At 11:59 pm late last night in Phoenix, Arizona the last Continental airline flight took off from it's airport there on a last journey to Cleveland. It will arrive in Cleveland as a United Airlines flight, the airline that bought them out two years ago. Imagine your last journey and you're going to Cleveland? Oh, dear! The Continental web site shut down at Two AM this morning (Saturday) How sad! Another icon gone the way of the do do bird. I used to fly this airline all the time. It was a Continental flight that flew out of Ontario that allowed me to go on with my Florida vacation back in 1992 when the Los Angeles riots closed International Airport. In order to get to Orlando, i had to fly first on a Continental flight to San Diego, then another Continental flight to Phoenix. From Phoenix, I had to take a plane to Dallas and from Dallas to Atlanta and finally Atlanta to Orlando. Was my luggage lost? Of course it was. But good old Continenatl's flight out of Orlando saved my vacation. Does anyone remember Continental's "Polynesian Pub?' As the guy who wrote a famous jingle for them way back when, it will indeed be sad to see old Continental Airlines go. They've been around for a long long time. In other news, John and I have finally finished the final polish on the libretto for an engaging musical comedy called "The Beautifully Bald Brooklyn Boys Choir!" This musical is so much fun. Imagine a group of all balding, once married (and then in the closet) gay men who (with one exception) are all broke paying alimony and/ or child support. these men have all formed a singing band called "The Prufrockers". Now for those of you who are scratching your head over that, the group name is inspired by the classic poem by T.S. Elliot called "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" in which our main character utters the now famous line: "Do I dare? Do I dare? Descend the stair? With a bald spot in the middle of my hair!" The leader of the group is Joe Miller whose ex-wife could be the original "Wicked Witch of the West" without being green except with greed. They were married twelve years and had a son named Winston before Joe discovered he was gay and left when young Winston was only eleven. As the musical opens, the ex-wife has sent re-possessors to confiscate all of the band's instruments and studio equipment. With that disaster fulfilled , the ex wife delivers a certified letter to her ex-husband that looks to be more bad news. It's not. The document reveals that Joe has been willed his grandmother's house and property but must live in it seven continuous years before he will officially inherit it and the four acres of land upon which it sits. Tiffany Miller's confiscation forces the boys to form an all male a Capella choir. But good old greedy Tiffany wants Grandma's old house too even though logistically that's impossible. That doesn't the greed machine from action. All of the men in the group are ex altar boys and ex-Catholics for the most part all desiring a new relationship with a guy. The first to have a shot with that is Michael Wissomski, the gayest of the group and the only one who has never been married prior to a woman. Enter young college freshman Christopher Fitzgerald who is a young god that Michael instantly lusts for. Michael pretends to be a great painter when Christopher reveals that he models in the nude for pay. Michael promises God that he gets the boy in bed, he'll go back to church. Art has never suffered this great a blow and when Michael spikes the college kid's coffee and does get him into bed an angry Christopher punches Michael out for it. But all goes better for the boys with the intervention of their old pastor priest, Father Murphy who inspires Christopher to remember his own Catholicism and let bygones be bygones, but also forcing Michael to go to confession after almost twenty years. Joe's kid Winston comes calling to live with Joe to warm him of his mother's planned law suit barrage and asks to live with him. The confrontation between Joe and his ex- wife gets Winston delivered to Social Services from where he escapes. In the end, however: boy finds father, group wins a $100,000 dollar contest. ex-wife loses battle and Michael gets Christopher when the young eighteen year old Adonis stud finally comes out of the closet, himself. Winston and Christopher shave their heads to be part of the bald men's singing group and everybody lives happily ever after. It's a great script and now available from our publishing company: Creative Horizons at www. showbusinwssmusicals.com
