The sometimes comic, sometimes serious, all-singing, all-dancing revue celebrating male nudity will play its final performance at the 47th Street Theatre April 30. A production spokesperson confirmed that the show will reopen May 6 at the Julia Miles Theater, which was formerly named Theatre 4. (Naked Boys Singing previously played Theatre 4 in spring 2004.) Naked Boys Singing!'s original 16-song score includes such numbers as "Fight the Urge," "The Bliss of a Bris," "Muscle Addiction," "Nothing But the Radio On," "Members Only" and "Window to Window." The musical comedy revue opened in New York July 22, 1999, after a successful run at the Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles. The show's contributing writers are Stephen Bates, Marie Cain, Shelly Markham, Jim Morgan, David Pevsner, Rayme Sciaroni, Mark Savage, Ben Schaechter, Robert Schrock, Mark Winkler and Bruce Vilanch. Schrock directed with choreography by Jeffry Denman and musical direction by Stephen Bates, who died in 2003.
Naked Boys Singing! offers three performances a week: Fridays at 10:30 PM and Saturdays at 6 and 10:30 PM.
The Julia Miles Theater is located at 424 West 55th Street.
