Nobody could accuse the producers of this show of false advertising. In ‘Naked Boys Singing’ you get to see and hear… naked boys singing. But you also get a bit more. At 60 minutes, the show is short on plot – a group of boys audition and rehearse for an all-male, all-naked revue. But each song tells a story, whether it’s an ode to masturbation (‘I beat my meat’) or a ditty about the pressures of being a gym bunny (‘A gay man’s got to be fat-free’). There are some serious issues too, like internalised homophobia and queerbashing. It’s a bit like a gay version of ‘A Chorus Line’ (as if that show wasn’t gay enough already). Still ‘A Chorus Line’ didn’t have men with their bits and asses on display, and when the big reveal comes, it’s handled with wit, warmth and plenty of cheeky charm. Porn star Dean Monroe joins the cast this week. Treat yourself and go.
