Trick

Trick Gabriel is a young, gay aspiring musical theatre writer/composer whose life seems to be stuck in the first act. He shares a tiny one-room apartment with Rich, whose robust and heterosexual love life has Gabriel sleeping in the hallway.

He is best friends with Katherine, a struggling off-off-off broadway actress who bulldozes through his life and his musical numbers with equal bravado. His theatre colleague Perry thinks poor Gabriel's work is as bland and safe as his life. If you want to change the former, Perry believes, you've got to shake up the latter.

Gabriel heads out to a local gay cruise bar to liven things up. Dancing high atop the bar is resident go-go boy Mark. Gabriel is enraptured, but not brave enough to approach him. He finishes his drink and heads to the subway. As the train rolls downtown, Gabriel realises that his go-go boy is on the same train. They flirt and when Gabriel gets off at his stop, Mark follows.

Having all but secured a perfect one night stand, Gabriel is left with one little problem. They have no place to go. The two head out into the night to find a spot where they can be alone. But obstacles pile up in front of them and the whole world seems to be involved in a conspiracy to keep them from coming together. As dawn approaches, they begin to learn that, in music as well as in life, the chorus may be the fun part, but sometimes it makes it a whole lot sweeter when you listen to the entire song.
