About the show

Set at a gay nudist camp, this very naked, new musical is "Rocky Horror" meets "Naked Boys Singing." More…

Gabe and Randy are newly engaged but struggling with their individual relationship goals. Their therapist suggests getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s rat race, to unplug and reconnect with each other. But on their way to a family lake house the car breaks down and they stumble upon a gay nudist camp, Morning Wood Meadows, on its last weekend open. The government, with the help of one ultra conservative senator in particular, has sold the property to a mega church. What follows for Gabe, Randy and the cast is a comic and heart warming weekend of temptations and new discoveries that promises to change everyone for the rest of their lives.

"The cast lacks powerful vocals, but they’re game...Veering between semi-racy and quaintly old-fashioned, the two-acter leads up to a not fully earned 'Who you are as a person is beautiful' message and it’s about as deep as a 'Here’s Lucy' episode, but it moves along and there are witty observations (and Grindr references) and fourth wall-breakings. So enjoy—but don’t touch the merchandise." Full Review

See it if Gay couple stumbles upon cleverly titled innocuous camp au naturel musical courtesy Off-B'way and a statement is made. Gay supportive.

Don't see it if Costumes are (oh,who cares.) Lured to our seats with the flippity-floppity, so why not take advantage & reveal depth beyond the eye candy?

Also Clever camp title. If only the rest were to follow (birthday) suit.

See it if You want to see naked men so much that you’ll settle for horrendous singing, bad writing, amateurish acting, and bargain basement on

Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if You're in the mood for a fully naked male cast singing & dancing in a campground. Loved the "Rise and Shine" song that they kept singing.

Don't see it if Some singing is off-key; cheap set design; runs 2 hours (should be cut to 90 minutes no intermission), but overall, a fun & harmless night!

Raunchy, Fluffy, Cliched

See it if you're looking for a very light, very silly, very naked musical. There's a great body positivity message in there...

Don't see it if ...but so are all the clichés. Typical gay archetypes, very low production value, bad writing. But the cast is earnest and charming.
