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.

Fluffy, Corny, Campy, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a game group of gays bare it all in a body-positive musical exposing the stereotypes of gay culture & social nudity.

Don't see it if ur there to see great acting, well-timed comedy & accomplished singers. [You know what ur there for... Just sit back & enjoy the silliness.]

Also I suspect the men of this play were cast more for their willingness to... Read more Read less

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

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?

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

Campy, Quirky, Fluffy, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You want to see a cast of young, committed men tell a few tales about self love & gay community. An over the top show about acceptance.

Don't see it if A lot of nudity offends you. The jokes fall flat in this one. Though there is talent in the cast it just doesn’t reach its potential.

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!

“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 ...

"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.

"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 observati...
