A mockumentary short film, “Thugs, The Musical” is about Michael Gardner (Kevin Avery), a frustrated, sightly delusional, and extremely non-urban black actor who writes, directs & stars in a disastrous musical to prove to Hollywood and the world that he can “act black.” Directed by Liam Sullivan and written by Kevin Avery, the film also stars David Alan Grier, Margaret Cho, Rachel True, Prodigal Sunn, Kenn Michael, and Baron Vaughn, and features original music from Avery and Alex Burke of Magnolia Memoir.
