The object of ridicule and pity... Colma: The Musical (Roadside Attractions)
Population 1.5 million but only 1100 living. That's how a headline describes the town of Colma , where nearly three-quarters of the land is devoted to cemeteries.

Richard Wong says hes always had a passion for the Hollywood musical.
