Begin with a brusque cinematic exposé of the male lead. Make it uncomfortably up close and personal. Zoom in on his apartment, his family, his drug use, his genitals. Invite a strong female director to make it. To make demands. I mean really order him around. Objectify him.
Let this set the stage. Now that the audience is hip to the sad nitty gritty on this guy, we can start the live performance.
