Watch out, ex-boyfriends, and get out of the way, homophobic coaches. Tiny Cooper has something to say and he's going to say it in song.
Filled with honesty, humor, and big, lively, belty musical numbers, "Hold Me Closer "is the no-holds-barred (and many-bars-held) entirety of the beloved musical first introduced in "Will Grayson, Will Grayson," the award-winning bestseller by John Green and David Levithan.
Tiny Cooper is finally taking center stage . . . and the world will never be the same again.
