My Life Is A Musical, according to press notes, "is a new musical comedy about Parker, who isn't like you or me. When Parker wakes up in the morning and leaves his apartment, he hears people singing, he sees people dancing – and no other person on earth has a clue this is happening. Because Parker's life is a musical. And Parker hates musicals. My Life Is A Musical is Parker's story, as he struggles to hide his predicament from the world, tries to save a rock band, is pursued by a mysterious blogger, and finds love along the way."
