Thugs, the Musical Needs Dough

LA-based comedian Kevin Avery is trying to raise funds to create his film Thugs, the Musical on Kickstarter.com.

From the comedian:
Thugs, The Musical is about Michael Gardner, a mediocre, slightly delusional, and very “non-urban” black actor in Hollywood who, after years of auditioning but not being considered “black enough” to be cast in any of the roles that his fellow black actors have been getting – the Gangsta, the fast-talking Sidekick, the one doomed Black Guy at the party in the horror movie – decides to write, direct, and star in his own theater production — an epically bad play called Thugs, The Musical — to show Hollywood (and the world) that he, too, can “act black”.
