Two moms, two kids, one singing dog, and 62 dads: a musical for gay and lesbian families!!! Summer vacation can’t get any better… until Mama breaks a filling and Mom drives her to the dentist. Sue is left to baby-sit while Harry pitches a tantrum, demanding the promised pancake breakfast. While the kids argue about which of their friends has the most useful parental configuration (three dads and two moms, two dads, none of either…) Harry noodles with spare parts and a large cardboard box. Suddenly, the box starts to shake and out steps a dad, complete with a plate of pancakes!

Before Stonewall can howl for help, sixty-two dads fill the house with pancakes and chaos. Will Sue find a math formula to solve this dilemma? Will Harry ever get a pancake that doesn’t taste like cardboard? Will Mama’s Novocain wear off in time for her to stop Mom from buying a whole new kitchen at Home Depot?
And how do you stop a daddy machine that doesn’t have an “off” switch? In the end, the kids realize that the best parent of all is the one who knows you and loves you, even when you’re hiding sixty-two dads...
