Storyline

This movie is all about a normal guy called Billy Apples. He is a social drinker and sometimes lead singer of a band. While he is doing all of this, he still manages to bring up his teenage daughter. One night while sitting at home Billy finds that he has a talent! He finds that he is able to sing like his idol, 50's singer Billie Holiday. From there he is going places, from huge live performances to even cutting a hit record, but in the end he must make a choice between the life he has, and the life he once knew. Written by Graham Wilson Jr <diex@suburbia.net>

Excellent Entertainment - Just Enjoy!

This musical is lots of fun. The plot line is just sufficient to sustain the increasingly entertaining musical numbers. I doubt that any US troupe would ever do "Is you is or is you ain't my baby?"; think of the politically correct howling.

This movie has the potential to be a cult classic, similar to "Rocky Horror Picture Show."

Enjoy it; don't think about it.
