Before Glee , there was Were The World Mine ! Armed with a magical love potion and empowered by dazzling musical fantasies, but struggling with his identity and acceptance, adorable teen Timothy (dreamy Tanner Cohen) turns his narrow-minded town gay while capturing the heart of Jonathon (buff Nathaniel David Becker), the rugby jock of his dreams. Also starring Wendy Robie ( Twin Peaks ), Broadway star Judy McLane ( Mamma Mia ), Zelda Williams ( House of D ), and Jill Larson ( All My Children ), Were the World Mine uses vibrant imagery, a first-rate cast, and innovative music to push gay cinema and musical film beyond expectation.
