"I'm Special: And Other Lies We Tell Ourselves," set to be published in June, is a non-fiction collection penned by O'Connell, who writes about being gay, having cerebral palsy and growing up with special needs. A regular writer for the online platform Thought Catalog, he describes it as his "coming out of the disabled closet." It also touches on the many comedic facets of twenty-something life: modern dating, jobs, drugs and coming-of-age.
Parsons is set to produce under the hat of his That's Wonderful Productions with Todd Spiewak. A cast member of the Tony-winning The Normal Heart, he also starred on Broadway in Mary Chase's Harvey as the title character. His latest stage role, An Act of God, is written by David Javerbaum and helmed by Wicked director Joe Mantello.
