New musical Camp Morning Wood, A Very Naked Musical is set to play a limited run at The Anne L. Bernstein Theater at The Theater Center Off-Broadway beginning May 29. Conceived and directed by Marc Eardley (Fat Kid Rules the World, 50 Shades), the musical follows a newly engaged couple who—while attempting to disconnect and reconnect outside of the city—find themselves stranded outside a gay nudist colony.
Camp Morning Wood, A Very Naked Musical is performed by a naked cast. The musical features book and lyrics by Jay Falzone and music by Derrick Byars, Bobby Cronin, James Dobinson, Matt Gumley, and Will Shishmanian.
Performances will begin May 29 ahead of a June 6 opening night, and will continue through July 7. Casting to come.
"We like to think of Camp Morning Wood as Rocky Horror meets Naked Boys Singing!," says composer and lyricist Falzone. "We wanted to write a show for today but one that calls back to a different era of fun, campy, crowd-pleasing Off-Broadway musicals."
The production features choreography by Ian Coulter-Buford and Falzone; musical direction by Casey Reed; musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by James Dobinson; scenic design by David McQuillen Robertson; costume design by Izzy Fields; lighting design by Zach Pizza; and sound design by Kimberly S. O'Loughlin.
Dustin West is the associate director and production supervisor, and Hazel Jade is the literary consultant.
Camp Morning Wood is presented by Husani Oakley, Curtis Howard and Soiree Faire Inc. in association with Get Naked LLC and Miss Hazel Jade.
