What a great show. Thought provoking and hilarious one liners plus hot men, especially the college kid and the movie star. Yummy! Just the right amount of bare butts and frontal nudity. I thought about it all weekend. I plan to see it again.

Quotes & Highlights

“…F**king Men is serviced brilliantly by this snappy, assured Chicago production.” —Chicago Tribune
“Emotionally Searing… Superb Performances…there is truth and understanding in F**king Men.” —Chicago Sun-Times
“…a tight, smart sex comedy.” —ChicagoCritic
“Highly Recommended. It’s a meaningful look at the desire for connection and the work it takes to maintain it.” —NewCity Chicago


F**king Men observes the sex lives of the modern urban gay American male. Conceived as a noir-riff on Arthur Schnitzler’s 19th-century play, La Ronde, the play examines ten men from all walks of life as they negotiate the before and after of lust, love, betrayal and the pursuit of sex and emotional connection.

Funny, poignant, sometimes dramatic, always provocative and sexy, the show has been a runaway success in Los Angeles and London. Bailiwick Chicago’s production has received incredibly positive reviews from all the Chicago press.
