Naked Boys Singing!, with a creative team including director and choreographer Carole Todd, musical director Aaron Clingham, assistant to the director William Spencer, and lighting designer Richard Lambert has announced the cast.
The production will play a strictly limited run from 13th March to 11th April 2020, with a Press Night on Tuesday 17th March at 9.30pm.
Originating at the Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles, this campy musical comedy opened Off-Broadway in 1999 and ran for over twelve years, before transferring to the Off-Broadway stage where it is still enjoying a healthy run today.
Naked Boys Singing! features 15 original songs, a bevy of gorgeous and talented men, and no clothes – a winning combination if ever there was one! From the sassy opening number “Gratuitous Nudity” to the screamingly funny “Bliss of a Bris,” audiences and critics the world over have hailed the revue a sure-fire crowd-pleaser.
