The Tailor Made Man stars Faye Tozer (Steps), Dylan Turner (Mamma Mia! London and film) and Mike McShane (Little Shop of Horrors) and is a powerful story about the Hollywood studio system and its hypocrisy, but above all it is the story of Billy and Jimmy's turbulent, passionate love affair that survived and lasted over 50 years.
