"DICKS: THE MUSICAL" Hits Theaters September 29th


Following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, "DICKS: THE MUSICAL" is making waves. A24 Music is gearing up to release the film's soundtrack on October 6th, 2023. The musical score for this unique project was composed by Marius de Vries, known for his work on "MOULIN ROUGE!" and "LA LA LAND," along with Karl Saint Lucy, collaborating with the film's writers and stars, Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp.

Today, fans get their first taste of the soundtrack with the release of "All Love Is Love," performed by the film's stars, including Aaron Jackson, Josh Sharp, Bowen Yang, Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and vocalist Lauren Evans.

"DICKS: THE MUSICAL" is a comedy about two self-absorbed businessmen, portrayed by Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp, who discover they are long-lost identical twins and decide to reunite their eccentric divorced parents in an uproarious and quirky musical directed by comedy icon Larry Charles, known for his work on "SEINFELD" and "BORAT." The film also features appearances by Megan Thee Stallion, Nathan Lane, Megan Mullally, and Bowen Yang.

The musical score, composed by Marius de Vries and Karl Saint Lucy, complements the film's eccentric storyline and humorous lyrics. It's a finely tuned orchestral accompaniment that captures the essence of an off-Broadway stage production.

The soundtrack is not only about the score; it features a lineup of original songs, including a track from Megan Thee Stallion and a sing-along that playfully portrays God as gay. It serves as a bridge between the film's humor and its underlying message.

In a year filled with musical releases, "DICKS: THE MUSICAL" promises to be a standout, offering a unique blend of humor and artistry.

Mark your calendars for September 29th when "DICKS: THE MUSICAL" hits theaters.
