Life imitates a play, and that's just the thing for sending up the Bible in this no-feathers-barred fantasia that swirls around Paul (Daniel Robinson) and Eddie (Joey Dudding), the leads in a musical called "Adam and Steve Just the Way God Made 'Em." Offstage, the pair act out the story of their own star-crossed lives: Paul, recently dumped, just wants to stay in, while Eddie's still coming out. But rest assured that the show tunes will go on.
