Nudity and Sensitive (Sexual) Material
« on: Nov 03, 2011, 03:58 pm »
Any Stage Manager (union, non-union, or university student) who has experience in dealing with nudity and sensitive sexual material in rehearsal and/or performance of a play/musical, who might be willing to be interviewed for a Master's Thesis Project, please send me a PM. (I am acting as a middle man for someone else, who is having trouble finding SMs who have experience with this. This is not my project)
Thanks!

I did a show with 22 naked men. I'm in!
I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Ionesco

I did a slew of what we affectionately ended up calling "naked boy plays", including Take Me Out - if I have time, happy to help

I'm in too.  We frequently have "the naked show" once in every season...

Thanks all, for your willingness to help out. Would those of you whose actual email addresses I do not have, please message them to me, so that I can forward them on?

To those of you who are friends and colleagues in a "real," not "virtual" sense, and to those of you who have already PM'd me with your email addresses, I have forwarded your email addresses on! If there's anyone else who wants to participate, just let me know!

Thanks,
Ruth

Hi everyone,
   This was for help with my thesis.  I thank all of you so much for the time you took to help me with it.  I learned a lot.
