The musical, by Donna Kaz and music by Wayne Barker, was last seen in the New York Musical Theatre Festival in October 2009. It has also been presented by Small Pond Entertainment in January 2008 and at the York Theatre Company's Developmental Reading Series in June 2006.

Ed Goldschneider will musical-direct the current reading that is scheduled for a 2 PM performance.

Other members of the cast include Alison Cimmet (Baby It's You!, A Tale of Two Cities), Kevin R. Free, Daisy Hobbs, Christopher Hoch, Rachel Bay Jones (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Hair), Cassady Leonard (Mary Poppins), Michael Minarik (Rock of Ages, Les Miserables), Aaron Serotsky (August: Osage County), Diego Prieto, Ryan Roets, Heather Jane Rolff (Shrek the Musical) and Lucia Spina (South Pacific, Legally Blonde, Les Miserables).

According to the creators, "What if a 1950s Midwestern housewife got so sick of making meatloaf every Tuesday night that she snapped — and ran away to Las Vegas? What if her mother could drink like Dean and her daughter entertain like Sammy? And what if this housewife went from the silent and submissive bottom to the tough, impulsive and calculated top of the heap? Live! Nude! Girl! is an original musical that tells the story of a once in a lifetime chance for one woman to break out of her rut into something original and cool."

NYTW is located at 79 East 4th Street, between Second Avenue and Bowery.
