So who exactly gets naked in this production? I'm trying to book tickets and I get a pop up that says there's nudity and to be careful sitting too close to the stage.

I believe there's a scene where one of the sailors who comes out of Fraulein Kost's room is at least partially nude...

I was hoping it was Sally Bowles but Michelle Ryan seems to be prudish about nudity.

Partially? No, he's fully nude.

I seem to remember some topless girls wondering around backstage at the Kit Kat Klub at one point.

Also the finale features some rather poignant, and tasteful nudes!

WTF! How come there were no nude sailors in the Broadway revival?

I saw the 2006 revival of Cabaret in London at the Lyric (I didn't care for much; not half as good as the Sam Mendes revival I had seen previously on Broadway). I recall a naked man who swung his torso back and forth so that his d*ck went "whack-whack-whack" and then ran off stage. Some in the audience laughed. I thought it sounded painful. Perhaps the British find that sort of thing amusing. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the sort of nudity in this new revival.

More importantly, what is it about the nudity should make you think twice about sitting closer to the stage?

Please buy the tickets and report back. With pictures.

I want to be close to Michelle Ryan the way Jordan is close to Jake and Carlos is close to Ricky. I do plan to sit very close and am looking forward to the nudity. Full report upon my return.

^I think it a "return engagement" of the same production. Same design and creative team anyway.
