Daniel Radcliffe and...that girl (who knows her name when Dan's naked on stage with her?) in Equus and multiple cast members of Cabaret at the Lyric Theatre in London.

ETA - Those puppets in Avenue Q, which I forgot about when I first posted, and Lea Michele and John Groff in Spring Awakening, which I hadn't seen when I first posted.

This is hilarious.

Isn't the point to go and see someone naked on stage if that is what you want to do?

Can talking about it afterward ever be as fascinating?

I find that mentioning that I've seen Equus can start a lengthy discussion that allows me to go into other shows I've seen and possibly get others interested in seeing them as well...any show, I mean, not JUST Equus.

Redgrave was also physically naked in ORPHEUS DESCENDING.

Personally, I've seen many many dozens of actors naked on stage in the past 30+ years of theatregoing, but trying to name them would require more time and energy than I have at the moment (not to mention, the whole business strikes me as rather sordid).

Then why did Margo bother to read the posting at all if she thought it was sordid? Surely she has better things to do.

There's nudity in King Lear?!

I guess I'll participate in this. Just Jon Groff and Lea Michele in Spring Awakening and Tom Everett Scott and Johnny Galecki in Little Dog Laughed.
