"Eddie and Paul have just begun previews for the new Off-Broadway musical Adam and Steve Just the Way God Made ‘Em," according to press notes. "When life begins to imitate art. Eddie is dealing with how his sexuality and religious upbringing can mix and Paul is looking for the perfect man. Eddie comes out to his family and Paul goes on Manhunt. Eddie’s parents are destroyed by the news and Paul can’t even have a good one-night stand. But after musical numbers, a cameo by Rick Skye as Liza Minnelli, a retelling of Genesis, tele-evangelists, a camp that attempts to turn gay kids straight, and a bunch of showtunes, everyone realizes that life gets better once they accept who they really are. And they are just the way God made ‘em."
The film is co-produced by Tom D’Angora and Michael Duling.
