About the Show

See it if You're looking for a cute gay romantic comedy with a non-white main character who has visions of Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga advising him.

Don't see it if You don't like formulaic romantic comedies, T.Swizzle, or Lady Gaga (though the impressions are hilarious)

"Comes across as a generic romantic comedy about a hopeless romantic looking for love in all the wrong places. Tunarrosa does double duty as both the playwright and the lead actor...Tunarrossa fails to deliver the material with the same gusto as the rest of his cast mates...The best part of 'You Belong With Me Because You're So Vain' is by far the leading ladies...A promising new work that probably just needs a bit more work to realize its complete quirky, romantic potential."

"This idea and story were strong...The execution, not so much. Tunarrosa's story has some fabulous plot holes that need to be patched up...ZanFagna's direction was a bit absent. With the rules being inconsistent, he haphazardly built the physical world...Writing a star vehicle for yourself isn’t always the best idea. Tunarrosa lacked the poise to truly carry this show on his shoulders. He should trust that there is something deep within his script and spend the time listening and finding it."
