The title says it all -- this is a unique evening of entertainment, even for New York City. Eight hunks display all of their charms as they celebrate the splendors of male nudity in comedy, song and dance. This sensational revue features 16 original songs, from the sassy opening number, "Gratuitous Nudity" to the hilarious "Bliss of a Bris." Naked Boys Singing, which made its triumphant return to off-Broadway last year, has been hailed by audiences and critics alike as a sure-fire crowd pleaser for bachelorette parties, girls and boys nights out or just a roaring good time for anyone who appreciates the male form, a good laugh and great music.

By Kate Moira Ryan
Directed by Ike Schambelan
In Bass for Picasso, amputee and food writer for the New York Times, Francesca Danieli, throws a dinner party for her friends recreating recipes from the Alice B. Toklas cookbook. The guest list includes Pilar, her multilingual art detective lover, who has spent time in Guantanamo for visa problems; Bricka Matson, a lesbian widow with a small child and Republican in-laws who are trying to gain custody; Joe, an OB/GYN whose lover is a geographically challenged crystal meth addict; and Kev, a playwright who has recently fallen off the wagon and written a soon-to-open Off-Broadway play about all of them. It’s an insanely funny, irreverent 90-minute look at gay and lesbian life in the new millennium.
Playwright Kate Moira Ryan — author of 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, Otma, Cavedweller and most recently Mommy Queerest — has crafted a funny, deeply touching look inside the life of five driven New Yorkers, including a woman whose disability is a part of her life, but does not define it. That’s the way it works for so many of the 54,000,000 Americans, nearly 20% of all U.S. citizens, who deal with a disability.
