The Naked Boys are headed back to town! Producers Tom D’Angora and Michael D’Angora have announced the return of Naked Boys Singing! to Off-Broadway at the AMT Theater. Performances will begin March 18.
The campy musical revue "celebrates the male form with a lot of laughs and no costuming." The 60-minute show features songs such as “The Bliss of a Briss” and culinary-inspired pun “I Beat My Meat." Casting will be announced at a later date.
The work was penned by Robert Schrock and a team of 12 writers, including Stephen Bates, Marie Cain, Perry Hart, Shelly Markham, Jim Morgan, David Pevsner, Rayme Sciaroni, Mark Savage, Ben Schaechter, Trance Thompson, Mark Winkler, and Bruce Vilanch. Pevsner and Vilanch also starred on Broadway in Fiddler on the Roof and Hairspray, respectively.
Naked Boys Singing! opened July 22, 1999, at the Actors Playhouse and ended its lengthy run in 2012 after 3,069 performances at various venues around the city, including Theatre 4, The John Houseman Theater, the 47th Street Theatre, and the Julia Miles Theatre. The musical recently played a Las Vegas residency starring David Hernandez (American Idol) and was adapted for the silver screen in 2007.
