High School Musical 3 not quite the gay romp you were hoping for? Tom Gustafson's feature-length expansion of his award-winning musical short, "Fairies," has you more than covered; what with the magical "love potion" that spurts forth from a violet flower like so much ejaculate, intoxicating many a hetero inhabitant of a suburban Chicago town into a singing, dancing, homosexual stupor.
Tanner Cohen (The Life Before Her Eyes) plays Timothy, an openly gay teen who's prepping to play fairy Puck in his high school's musical production of A Midsummer Night's Dream — typecasting if ever there was such. Twin Peaks' Wendy Robie isn't wearing her eyepatch anymore, but as Timothy's English teacher and portal to Shakespeare, she's as over-the-top intense as ever.
Zelda Williams shines as Timothy's best friend, but Gustafson's clumsy, queer take on the Bard by way of Dead Poets Society (Robin Williams is Zelda's dad) could have benefitted from a bit more Lynch-like surrealism.
