Kicking off a run of major-studio comedies depicting LGBTQIA+ themes and portrayals with big stars — and big ticket sales — playwright Douglas Carter Beane scripted a forerunner to this decade’s We’re Here cable show. A road trip to Hollywood for NYC drag queens Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo detours (via car trouble) to small-town Snydersville. The cast includes Stockard Channing, Blythe Danner, Melinda Dillon, Alice Drummond, Beth Grant — and a slew of icons slaying in surprise appearances (no spoilers!).
