Two thousand performances and the boys are still naked and still singing. Naked Boys Singing! the Off-Broadway hit has surpassed “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown,” “Forever Plaid” and “Driving Miss Daisy.”
Since opening five years ago, Naked Boys Singing! has become something of a theatrical phenomenon, spawning more than twenty productions worldwide.
The show has been translated into five languages, and productions of the hugely successful show have appeared in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Portland, Provincetown, Washington, DC, London, Rome, Sydney, Oslo, Cape Town, Puerto Rico and, as recently as last month, in Mexico City, among others.
The revue was conceived and directed by Robert Schrock and features songs and skits by twelve high talent writers including and two-time Emmy Award-winner Bruce Vilanch.
The full frontal show features choreography by Jeffry Denman.
If you hit New York this summer, do yourself a treat and head to Theater Four (424 West 55th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues).
