He's a movie star, soap actor, book author, Golden Globe nominee, Oscar host, and now James Franco is adding another title to his resume: musical producer.
IvyGate reports that the busy Yale student is currently in the process of putting together a musical-theater production called "James Franco Presents." Auditions will be held January 16 and 17 — though Franco won't be present — and the roles certainly sound interesting. According to the production's description on the Yale Drama Coalition site:
"'James Franco Presents' is the story of a girl dealing with the realities of love and life once she realizes she can’t hide behind the wonderful fantasies of fiction. A comedic drama, this musical incorporates film and live musical theater to tell the story of a cast struggling to write and produce a musical that is grounded in high school realities but with a sci-fi twist. Sex, blood, and surrealism to be expected."
Franco's play is expected to run April 7-9 and 14-16.
