About the show

Part of New York Musical Theatre Festival, billed as "theater for men who hate theater," explores manhood and all its responsibilities using puppets and song. 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' 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?"
