Hey, have you caught the web series THE GAY AND WONDROUS LIFE OF CALEB GALLO? Well, what’s stopping you? Grab your jacket, buy a ticket and hop a plane to New York City and go directly to the Tribeca Film Festival – Do Not Pass Go – Do Not Collect $200. It will all be worth it. Or, if you don’t feel like going through all that hassle, just click on the Internet and type in THE GAY AND WONDROUS LIFE OF CALEB GALLO and press the play button when the window opens.
It’s a great show and once you take a look at it you’ll be wishing that you thought of making it before Brian Jordan Alvarez did. He created it and he hired some of the best crew to produce it. He also took his time and hired the best actors in Los Angeles to play the characters that interact with his character, Caleb Gallo. They energy they bring to the show is what makes it so special, each bringing their unique flair to the characters… The acting is SUPERB!
One of the more interesting ideas in this very funny show (we finally saw episode 2) is that the character Benicio, played by Antonio Marziale, is only seen and heard on a cell phone. He’s not leaning against a wall holding a cell phone and talking to someone, but he’s IN a cell phone, a smart phone to be more precise (technology these days). We only see his very attractive little face talking convincingly to his lover, Caleb. In both episode 1 and 2, Antonio comes alive on the screen, a virtual character, so to speak, yet he is a pivotal one who keeps us guessing when, if ever, we will see him in the flesh.
Lucky for us, Antonio is a fine actor who can pull this off very believably. He keeps us wanting more and now we find ourselves strung out with our mouths open waiting for the next episode to give us some hope that Benicio is not just a figment of our imaginations.
Of course, we do know the producer and we think he may have thrown us a clue of what to expect. Unfortunately, we have been sworn to secrecy and can’t leak any spoilers here on this page. So, have you decided whether you’re going to NYC or just staying around your cable box for the next episode? Good luck whatever you do.
