Get Your Kit Off!

Opening at the world famous London Fringe theatre, the Kings Head on 26th May 2009.

http://www.kingsheadtheatre.org/theatre-whatson.asp

The show has an 8 show a week run from May 26th thru July then plays late night shows at 10pm Tue to Sat for an open ended run.
PLUS Sunday shows!
Get Your Kit Off!
The New York production is nearly 10 years old now but the first West End run was poorly produced and closed quickly, this new one by Phil Wilmott promises to be closer to its New York original.

Get Your Kit Off!

The trouble with this show is it is sort of over after the first number. There is nothing more to see. It is a gimmick which outstays its welcome.

The DVD of the show is available (filmed in L.A.), it is a filmed version of a stage production. It is about as good as this show can get.

I saw it in New York about 5 years ago and that is exactly how I felt- a one trick pony!

It is kept alive in NY by "Bachelorette" parties, strange when you consider it is a gay show.Maybe this new London season will target that market.

There was a "straight" version of this that toured a bit a couple of years ago. They started out with the title Naked Boys Singing and then had to change it due using different songs (ie straight themes that had nothing to do with nudity) and the threat of litigation from the producers of the original.

I saw it at the Lowry and the new material was abysmal - an insult to the performers. The audience was 2/3 straight women giggling as though they'd never seen a naked man before, and 1/3 gay. I spotted one very defensive straight bloke who kept his arm round his girlfriend the whole time. I wonder which of the routines she made him do when they got home.

PS I thought this thread was going to be about a revival of The Changing Room.

A major reason its still playing to full houses in New York is that it only plays a 3 show week.

The Kings Head is tiny and its a very personal venue at the best of times so there will be no restricted viewing for this one!

???? What does one do on a boring Sunday afternoon at 3 ???

This is hysterical!
The Kings Head, depending on staging of a production, has at the most 5 rows of seating-tops.
OK!
This is the funny part, for 'Naked Boys Singing' they have premium seating!
Noraml seating ?15
Premium seating ?20
Must be on the boys laps?

i read that the 20 tickets were reserved tickets
i.e you've got a set seat (in the first two rows i believe...)

the 15 tickets are general admission (ie Rent Remixed) sit where you want

The Kings Head, after its new seating a couple of years back, can hold about 120 now. Its much more spacious than you think!

Last I checked it doesn't matter how close you are to Sam - the show usually cards to ensure 18+ attendance.
