PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Naked Boys Singing is a traditional musical revue, in the vein of Vaudevulle and high-camp American musical theater. Its only point is to celebrate the splendors of male nudity in comedy, song and dance. There are 15 songs in NAKED BOYS- making this tribute to the human male fly-by in a rage of laughter and nudity! Come and see it for yourself- you'll have a great time! Visit our website

More Than Just Nudity

I had heard quite a bit about Naked Boys Singing from friends of mine still living in New York. They all said that yes, it had been a great show, but after almost 6 years it was tired, etc. So I was interested, but didn't have high hopes when I went and saw the Atlanta show recently. I was also familiar with the music, thought it to be uneven but pretty good overall, and was curious about what this production would do with it. I can happily say that I was not disappointed by the Atlanta production. Tired it is not. The actors, for the most part, are having a great time up there, sing beautifully when doing the group numbers (some of the harmonies are terrific!), and the audience had a great time. There are moments, however, when the actors, to a man, seem disconnected from each other as well as from the audience. Not sure what that is about. This is particularly true in the opening and closing numbers. At other times though, they're right there, very present. A standout in the cast, for me, is Dan Barron, who brings sensitivity and depth to his numbers. Also wonderful is Christopher Skinner, especially in "The Entertainer", a number I hadn't thought much of based on the CD alone. This is also true of Ben Hammer's courageous job on "Perky Little Porn Star". The song is not a great one, but Hammer goes for it, and makes you really admire this little guy he's singing about. Overall, great fun. I recommend this show to anyone looking to have a good time out with friends, seeing something a little different than the usual fare. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

All I knew about NBS is that there were naked boys singing. I went not expecting anything in particular and loved it. The costumes were great (ok i had to say it) the music was fun and I'm sure there was a theme someone could relate to if they were a gay man. It had a song or two i thought wasn't as good as some of the others but I actually almost forgot about the nudity after the first 10 minutes of the show and started to focus more on the songs and performance. The only problem I had was a lighting issue and a sound issue. At one point it was hard to hear during a song and then later it almost sounded like a mic was turned on or something and during one scene the actor didn't seem to be in the light, unless that was the intent, then my bad.
I think it's a great show with fun music and great talent. I look forward to seeing more from some of these guys. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
