Naked Boys Singing!

Naked Boys Singing! is a traditional American Vaudeville-style musical revue, with book and direction by Robert Schrock, musical direction by Stephen Bates and choreography by Jeffry Denman, that features eight actors who sing and dance naked. The show was produced by Jamie Cesa, Jennifer Dumas, Hugh Hayes, Tom Smedes and Carl D. White.

This campy Off-Broadway musical comedy opened on July 22, 1999 at the Actors' Playhouse in New York City. The show transferred to Theatre Four in March 2004, and again in 2005 to New World Stages Stage Four, until it closed on January 28, 2012.

Shortly after the original Off Broadway closed Producer/Directors Tom and Michael D'Angora decided to transfer their smash hit Provincetown adaption of Naked Boys Singing to the Off Broadway Stage. The official Off Broadway Revival opened at Theatre Row's Kirk Theatre on April 5, 2012 and is still enjoying a healthy run today.


Synopsis

The show has no plot; it contains 15 songs, about various issues, such as gay life, male nudity, coming out, circumcision and love.
