''Zanna, Dont!'' is an Off-Broadway [[TheMusical musical]] by Tim Acito. It was written in 2002 and ran its Off-Broadway run 2003. It was to get a run on Broadway, but talk of that has largely tapered off. It takes place in an AlternateUniverse where chess is cool, football is weird, and [[CastFullOfGay everybody]] is gay.

The show revolves around the character Zanna, resident matchmaker, magic practitioner and student at Heartsville High. In the course of the story, he hooks up Mike and Steve, and Roberta and Kate. Disaster strikes when Steve and Kate fall in love, causing them to be ostracized. In an attempt to make everything better, Zanna permanently flips their world into our world. Now everyone is straight and he's the odd one out. But everyone learns to get [[ThePowerOfFriendship along in the end]].

* CastFullOfGay : Everyone in Heartsville (and the rest of America) are gay.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* GayGuySeeksPopularJock: Though due to the gay AlternateUniverse of the musical, the LovableJock is actually closeted ''straight'', and Chess is cooler than Football in any case.

* [[CollegeRadio High School Radio]] : Tank is resident DJ.
