An e-mail from producer Carl White sent Jan. 5 said, "This email shall confirm that due to popular demand, the Off-Broadway smash hit Naked Boys Singing will not be closing on January 11th. The show has seen an encouraging increase in ticket sales and will remain open indefinitely, contingent upon further grosses each week." Naked Boys Singing! is a sometimes comic, sometimes serious, all singing, all-dancing revue celebrating male nudity. The 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 (The Producers) and musical direction by Stephen Bates.
