Americans have a reputation of a prude nation, and indeed the country is still recovering after Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction’in 2004, when one of her breasts, adorned with a nipple shield, was exposed by Justin Timberlake for about half a second 😀
I heard about it a few years ago, then eventually got a DVD
, and although not a fan of musicals, I was bound to see it live.
Here is a video the preview of the film:
I went to see it with several friends one of whom saw it in its first season, when it was a small performance in a gay neighborhood in West Village. Apparently, the show has slightly changed since then, and the cast changes every season; and it has certainly outgrown gay-men-only target audience, as about half of the visitors were women, although the texts still mostly address lives of gay men.
Most of the show is a comedy, like this song about perky little porn star:
And what I enjoyed too is that the actors like to interact with the audience. Well done and very entertaining, especially during the chilly winter weather!
