A team of Broadway stars have teamed up to create their own protest to Russia’s anti-gay law, and being theatre folk, they decided the best way was with a fun musical parody. In the piece, Russia wants to shut down all theatre for being just that little bit too gay.

It’s also a lot of fun, so take a look above.
