About the show

New World Stages presents 'Real Men,' a musical comedy about what it means to be a man today's day and age. More…

Get real and get ready, for an original adult musical comedy about real men behaving like...well...real Men. It's a madcap, musical romp through manhood, shared with women, children, and yes, even puppets. Real Men, who make a habit of juggling their balls every day: fatherhood, mid-life crisis, dating, marriage, potency, sexuality...and the lack of it. 'Real Men' answers the one pertinent question on everyone's mind, "Do real men sing and play with puppets?"

My guest was ...

"With 'The Real Men: The Musical,' the title alone may cause incipient stomach grumbling, but don't be discouraged...They are so off-the-cuff engaging that they completely avoid the macho posturing that could infect this sort of endeavor...It would be a pleasure to report they're often in the wro...
