Camp, Fluffy, Cliched, Funny, Clever

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? Read more

Relevant, Quirky, Raunchy, Indulgent, Clever

See it if Naked Boys Singing meets Love, Valor & Compassion in this fluffy, campy & fully naked musical trifle Witty, effervescent fun while it lasts

Don't see it if Show's Achilles heel is its innocuous, pallid songs; as is length - can't carry an intermission Strong message of gay self-acceptance though

Confusing, Cliched, Quirky

See it if If you want to see average guys naked. The plot is a bit confusing, but the music is fun. The "OZ" plot just doesn't really work.

Don't see it if The previous carnation was more interesting, and made more sense. Can they get better looking people next time?

“It succeeds as a joyous flesh parade but disappoints as an actual theater piece. What might have been an engaging encounter group-style exploration depicting facets of the gay male experience is instead labored with a flatly comical cornball plot that’s dragged out to two hours...Falzone’s book is structurally solid and does offer eloquent insights into contemporary NYC gay life but grows tiresome."

Theatre is Easy
June 17th, 2019

"Silly and more than a little rough around the edges. Were it a festival production, it’d be terrific...Those who want more than just nudity might leave unfulfilled. Yet as cheesy as the musical is, its sorely needed message of gay male body positivity takes on a special weight when voiced by a group of cheerful naked men...For those for whom clothing is never ‘optional’, ‘Camp Morning Wood’ offers a glimpse into a world you might otherwise never get to experience.”

Theater Pizzazz

“The material elicits an indulgently campy, albeit raunchy(er), ‘Book of Mormon’ vibe...The cast...holds their own...The lyrics, and...the written dialogue, are equally smart and snappy...The music itself...ain’t half-bad either...And while the plot may seem more than paper-thin (and, as a result, the eventual denouement rather predictable), but despite any shortcomings story-wise, rest assured that the heart and its message of acceptance and equal rights for all imparts rings loud and clear."

"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."
