6539 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood
A musical love story set in the world of gay porn, based on the semi-autobiographical tale of adult film performer Hans Berlin, who invites you to meet the real people behind the scenes of this taboo (and fascinating) industry. Taylor, a young, struggling Hollywood actor, finds himself rocketed to stardom as porn performer Taylor “TNT” Trent. Through Taylor’s eyes, we are introduced to a family of lovable misfits whose profession is making our wildest fantasies come alive. As Taylor achieves the fame he long sought in a world where sex and love seem to be mutually exclusive, he discovers that the life you dream of may not always be the one you truly want. SHOOTING STAR is about finding oneself, a family, and above all else — love. This production contains nudity, adult and sexual content.

"...Shooting Star proposes that porn stars are people, too. But the script is full of mixed messages. Odes of love and acceptance are rescinded with backstabbing and narcissism. And while its “small town boy finds success in the city” trope is given a pornographic twist, it offers little in the way of substance and heart to make such a well-trod tale truly satisfying."

"...If there's anything gay men adore, it's musical theater and porn, just two of the reasons why Shooting Star - A Revealing New Musical, a Hudson Mainstage World Premiere, is the gay porn musical event of this or any other year."
