A new New Zealand musical about the love between two men who dress as women will have its world premiere at Auckland’s Pumphouse Theatre as part of the 2016 Pride Festival.

The iconic Peter Taylor/Rodney Coleman Bar on Ponsonby Rd, Dorothy’s Sister, is the setting for this new musical journey into a love that has no boundaries.

A crossdressing male and a transgendered woman prepare, separately, in their closets, for the big Masquerade Ball at Dot’s Bar. There is a spark. ‘Bianca’ hasn’t yet told his family about his other life while Sheena has her own dark secrets.

The journey that ensues is a labyrinth of lives lived less ordinary yet one where the destination is simple, genuine and absolutely ‘normal’ love. People Like Us is about freedom, truth…and a very big transgender wedding.

Comprising 23 new original songs, from ballad to rap, People Like Us has a stellar cast including Cindy of Samoa, Ramon Te Wake and Luke Bird. The cast is led by a formidable directing team of Borni te Rongopai Tukiwaho, musical director Lavina Williams and choreographer Taiaroa Royal.
