The Garden Theatre launches the EAGLE LATE season with the International hit musical revue, ‘Naked Boys Singing!’


 
The title says it all in the international smash hit musical comedy ‘Naked Boys Singing!’This hilarious musical revue features 15 original songs, a bevy of gorgeous and talented men, and no clothes – a winning combination if ever there was one! 

From the sassy opening number “Gratuitous Nudity” to the screamingly funny “Bliss of a Bris,” audiences and critics the world over have hailed ‘Naked Boys Singing!’ a sure-fire crowd-pleaser.

Originating at the Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles, this campy musical comedy opened Off- Broadway in 1999 and ran for over 20 years - and until lockdown it was still running.

This new production, directed and choreographed by Carole Todd, was due to open at the King’s Head Theatre in March but its press night was cancelled when all theatres shutdown.

‘Naked Boys Singing!’ will now launch the EAGLE LATE season at the Garden Theatre, Eagle London, 349 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall, London SE11 5QY from Friday 25 September to Sunday 11 October

A note from LAMBCO Productions

In these days of powerful media and mass market advertising, it’s all too easy to feel guilty for not eating the right foods, not going to the gym, not having the right look, not having the right haircut or wearing the latest fashions. We often allow ourselves to feel inadequate, which can result in superficial facades such as clothing, allowing us to project a well-
considered but false image to those around us. Many people could never consider allowing themselves to be seen naked.

Once the clothes come off, we are exposed in ways that go way deeper than the skin’s surface. A group of naked people share both a vulnerability and a similarity in having imperfections, but they tend to be kinder to each other, less critical, and there can be a deeper connection. Being as nature intended, rather than hiding ourselves from view, is not a sexual overture. The world would be a much kinder place if society was more accepting of nakedness.

I’d like to thank you for coming to see ‘Naked Boys Singing!’ and we all hope you enjoy the fun and connection of this show!
