NOW, THANKS TO GAY MARRIAGE, Paul is broke, he has had to sell both homes to split the equity with Todd, at fire-sale prices in a softening market (Todd needed his half now as Gary’s play needed to get underway), he has lost three major clients due to the time spent in court with Todd, and is being “let go” at William Morris in favor of a go-getter 29-year-old hot-shot who just signed a kid from Tennessee who’s sure-to-be-next year’s Hot Item.
Next, the play about young love in Mozambique actually has cost over-runs (big surprise) and costs hit $900K, in small $25,000 increments, which Todd, so far, has been happy to cover.
Now, Gary is so consumed with making sure that his play is a success, he, like Paul, is working 22 hours per day, and Todd is lost in the shuffle.
The play opens to less than dismal results. The $900K is gone, and, Gary seems to be spending a lot of time with the lead actor, 22-year-old Tim, a hottie from Laguna.
Todd is tired of being left out of the loop for a 22-year-old, is now broke, and Gary moves in with Tim.
Now, class, what have we accomplished, other than a financial train-wreck?
