“They’re not repulsive, they’re part of gay culture,” declares Broadway superstar Nathan Lane about two mischievous sewer boys in the latest trailer for Dicks: The Musical. Similar to the two diapered and confined sewer boys, the forthcoming film promises to be a riveting blend of flamboyant debauchery and bizarre humor. The new trailer provides a peek at the celebrity cast and a variety of intriguing characters. The theatrical premiere of Dicks: The Musical is slated for September 29, 2023.
The narrative of Dicks: The Musical revolves around two rather obnoxious and self-centered businessmen, enacted by Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp, who stumble upon the shocking truth that they are identical twins. United once again, the duo devises a plan to reconcile their parents, portrayed by Lane and Megan Mullally. The movie, incorporating a Parent Trap-inspired storyline and a healthy dose of absurd humor, is expected to charm a diverse spectrum of audiences. The cast features Lane, Mullally, Jackson, and Sharp along with Megan Thee Stallion as the formidable boss, and Bowen Yang of Saturday Night Live fame as God.
The first trailer offers a sneak peek into the quirky musical. The preview kicks off with the central characters beginning their day in their characteristic discourteous and inconsiderate ways. Both deliver musical pieces about their competence while treating bustling city streets as their private territory. The striking resemblance between the two salesmen is pointed out by their boss, played by Megan Thee Stallion, which they initially dismiss. However, they soon discover that they are indeed identical twins. The trailer then shifts to their musical adventure of trying to bring their parents back together. There’s also a glimpse of the notorious sewer boys, though their significance to the plot remains unclear, despite their cultural significance.
