"Let's Be Frank"
A new musical written with Zayre Ferrer (Book/Lyrics)
Ernesto has invented a wicked little brother called Frank, so that he can travel to Miami on weekends and behave scandalously without damaging his highly respectable reputation. Wanting to settle down, he decides to kill of his fictitious brother Frank, and tells his best friend Gregorio about his plans. But being Frank sounds like a lot of fun to Gregorio, who decides to take the name out for a spin. The only trouble is, both men will soon find themselves in the same place, engaged to women who believe that “Frank” is the only man for them.
