Q: Are they really naked?
A: YES! All 8 guys onstage are fully naked for much of the show. There are quite a few costumes, but after all…they DO need something to TAKE OFF, now, don't they?

Q: Is this show for gay men only?
A: Heck NO! The NY Daily News says: "Bound to be a hit with gays, straights and EVERYONE in between!" And they are right! Since the original Los Angeles production, and now all over the world, NAKED BOYS has always attracted an extremely eclectic audience…we've had men, women, senior citizens, mothers, fathers, Rabbis, strippers, nudist groups, bachelorette parties galore and people from all walks of life. We welcome everyone!

Q: Can we get up onstage? A: We're sorry - but NO. NAKED BOYS is a legit, professional theatrical production with legit union actors. This is not a show of the "Chippendale's" variety and NO MIXING with the audience is allowed at any time. So please remain in your seats and feel free to LAUGH and clap as much as you would like!

Q: What is the show about?
A: NAKED BOYS is a traditional musical revue, in the vein of Vaudeville and high-camp American musical theater. Its only point is to celebrate the splendors of male nudity in comedy, song and dance. Musical numbers range from the screamingly funny (like our sassy opening number "Gratuitous Nudity" or the circumcision-based "Bliss of a Bris") to poignant and moving numbers. There are 15 songs in NAKED BOYS - making this 65-minute 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!
