Naked Boys Singing! - now booking until December 2011 - ticket offer available
In the late nineties, when so-called Lads' Mags and satellite television looked set to conquer the world, one show managed to combine the two and, in a way, sum up those heady days - L!ve TV's 'Topless Darts'.
Neither 'Topless Darts' nor L!ve TV made it to the turn of the century, although the channel was revived - then smothered again - as part of Sky's digital offering. Part of the appeal of Topless Darts was the simplicity of the show, conveyed quite adequately in its three-syllable title. It featured topless women, playing darts (after a fashion).
In the great tradition of L!ve TV, who also brought us 'Naked News', comes Naked Boys Singing. Thankfully, 'NBS' has nothing to do with L!ve TV and is in fact returning to London for a fourth run.
The musical comedy revue features an original score of 16 songs 'celebrating the splendours of male nudity', starring an ensemble of seven nude male performers. Inevitably more appealing to some than others, Naked Boys Singing is nonetheless aimed at a broad (and broadminded) audience and not just hen party groups, baying for flesh.
In spite of its wide appeal, the show has not been without controversy. In Milwaukee, the run had to end prematurely - with a police raid - after a censorship lawsuit was filed.
Following the success of the 2011 shows at London's Charing Cross Theatre, tickets for another set of dates have now gone on sale, with bookings being taken from 24th June to 3rd December. Performances are Friday and Saturday nights only.
Tickets are usually £15 but Allgigs has a special offer, with all seats available for just £12.50. Click on the Book This Offer button to take advantage.
Note that the show really does contain male nudity throughout and is recommended for those aged 16 and above only.
