Back in the 90s Mark Ruffalo appeared in an off-Broadway play where he and other male cast members disrobed. I don't remember the title but they were baseball players and it was a scene that took place in a lockerroom.

McKellen had quite a thick and juicy looking hog in "King Lear". I saw that, I saw "Take Me Out" with the original cast, saw Jude Law emerge from the bath in "Indiscretions", saw Lee Pace in "Angels in America". I saw a play called "Marlowe" where a sexy and talented actor called Christian Camargo as gay Elizabethan rebel and playwright Christopher Marlowe entered swinging on a rope totally nude. Sam Trammell played his love interest but I think he remained clothed.
The two plays where Maxwell Caulfield was nude were "Entertaining Mr. Sloane" and "Salonika" back in the 1980's.
Off-Broadway in 2010 I saw a gay two-character play about a Manhunt hookup that turned cathartic called "Loaded" with Kevin Spirtas ("Days of Our Lives" and "One Life to Live") and Scott Kerns. They began the play in the nude in bed.

The former had mostly all character types muddy and bloody from the rugby field, speaking in annoying and indecipherable Yorkshire accents. Lithgow was probably the most attractive if that's any gauge. I remember that 3 from the cast were featured on the cover of After Dark but they were all in minor roles, lost in the crowd.

I've seen many nude scenes in plays in "the legitimate theater" in NYC, but the highlights are:
'Take Me Out,' Public Theatre and on Broadway,
Maxwell Caulfield's enchanting prone butt in 'Salonika,'
John Wesley Shipp in the Armory's multiple-scened whodunit 'Tamara,' - I'd been clued in by a friend who noted that moving to an upstairs set at the opening of Act II revealed a fully dripping wet nude Shipp emerging from a bathtub; just a glimpse of cock,and a generous viewing of his amazing ass.
But the most entertaining moment was Alec Baldwin's repeated strips to silk boxer shorts in Circle Rep's "Prelude to a Kiss." The moment he flops down to lay on a bed (or chair?) his package visibly bounced!

Fortunately it was Tim Hopper who was nude in that production and not Nathan Lane in the previous production in the same role. The director had Hopper, who played a overzealous fan/writer, in a trenchcoat which he removed at one point, revealing himself to be totally naked. It's not in the script -- it's something the director put in. It kind of worked, for a bit of shock value. Langella was pretty great as the lead, much better than Kevin Kline.

The Present Laughter nude scene though gratuitous and came out of nowhere and you were like what?! then paid off in a subsequent very big laugh with another dressed actress. Langella's reactions were very funny. It's as if you can keep it in because it was a good piece of business.
Tim Hopper was at the door as I was leaving holding a basket for AIDS contributions. The woman in front of me as we were leaving said to him you've got a very cute butt. He turned crimson immediately which I thought was pretty funny. As if you can see a man naked on stage but it's impolite to mention it.

In 2010, the York Theater produced a show called YANK! a musical about a gay relationship between two American servicemen during World War II. I love the music of that era so I couldn't wait to see it and was thrilled when hunky Ivan Hernandez got naked during a barracks scene in which, if I recall correctly, he came out of the shower, dropped the towel and got dressed.
I enjoyed the show so much that I went back to see it again, but this time, Ivan dropped the towel and got dressed without facing the audience. Though the rear view was still quite lovely, I was somewhat puzzled, so when the director was being interviewed on the Frank DeCaro radio show shortly thereafter, I emailed a question asking why the change in staging. Apparently, Hernandez was, shall we say, taking liberties with the staging the first time I saw it, and one can presume that he was told to face the other way during the scene from then on.

IIRC, the first commercial Broadway show to have full frontal male nudity was a late 1960s comedy called You Know I Can't Hear You You When the Water's Running. It was an evening of four one act plays with a common theme but in one of them there is a wife talking to her offstage husband while he is brushing his teeth. He finally comes out of the bathroom totally starkers and facing the audience while still brushing his teeth, saying you know I can't hear you, etc.
The evening got good reviews and had a long run. The nudity has always been assumed to have been a successful publicity stunt and in most later productions, the husband comes out of the bathroom in his boxers

Did Martin Balsam actually do that staging? I remember reading the plays, or certainly that particular 1 act years ago. It's about producer and writer writing a nude scene where someone is supposed to come in nude at one point and say the titular "You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running" to be all current with the then new openess and nudity on Broadway. Balsam's character shows up as a desperate actor willing to do anything, but I seem to recall he may have flashed the other actors out of sight of the audience. But I just read the play. Maybe someone here actually saw the staging.

Years ago, I saw a production of "The Birds" at the Stratford Festival in Canada. The audience was told that there would be nudity in the show, but no one could have anticipated what it really was. It was a large cast with plenty of young men in the Greek Chorus. At a certain point of the play, the entire male chorus came out totally naked. It was a small arena stage, so everyone could be plainly seen. I was in the first row, so I sat there, erecting in the middle of Aristophanes. I truly believe that the director was a perv who cast the hottest young men and then had them prance around naked for about seven minutes. There were a few who really attracted me, so I spent the entire time staring at their dicks bouncing around and their tight little asses.

R136 I saw the 2019 production of Curse of The Starving Class at the Signature Theater in NY. I'm a big fan of Sam Shepard plays, but had forgotten that there is a nude scene where Gilles Geary who plays son Wesley comes out nude carrying a live lamb (the photo shows him clothed). Photos of Gilles don't do him justice he's incandescent in person and has a lovely body. Sam Shepard initially write the play with the scene partially dressed but decided to make the son totally nude in early iterations of the scene.

"Curse of the Starving Class" also includes a scene with the older brother pissing on his little sister's 4H paper project on the floor. Various productions have chosen him pissing upstage, back turned, with a hidden small water bottle, or, as with a college production I saw, the actor whipping out his dick and pissing facing front. I met the (cute) actor later and asked how he could piss on cue. "I had a beer before curtain every night!" Yes, we later had sex.
Ah, the theatre arts!

R115 is so right. Gbenga Akinnagbe in the Flea Theater's production of FULFILLMENT in 2015 was stunning. Huge, huge cock. And it was out for a long while. And Juan Castano in the Public Theater's OEDIPUS EL REY was also truly breathtaking. Both of these shows were in small OB houses, so everyone was so close. Castano was just a few feet away, and his cock was at my eye level.
Those are the two most impressive ones I've seen on stage. I did see porn star Rex Chandler in MAKING PORN in the WV, and he of course is impressive when he takes his clothes off. David Burtka displayed a nice piece in the Albee play, and Lee Pace was so beautiful and sexy in the CREDEAUX CANVAS at PH.
Other notables: Daniel Craig in ANGELS IN AMERICA at the National, everyone in TAKE ME OUT, and David Anzuelo who had to have a full erection in INTIMACY. And did. (And it was allowed by Equity.)
But the most exciting nudity and sex I've ever seen on stage? A production of OUR LADY OF THE FLOWERS in Melbourne set in an actual prison. Those men. Those cocks. Have never seen anything that comes close to that.
I had a play Off-Broadway that had lots of male frontal nudity and a beautiful actor doing it. No one's mentioned it yet, or him, which means all you bitches missed out when you missed my show!

I'm guessing it's the pay.
I actually don't mind Dick Wolf's other two Chicago shows. Nick Gehlfuss in Med and Patrick Flueger in P.D. make the shows interesting enough visually, and I enjoy both of their characters' struggles. Chicago Fire doesn't really have anyone I like a lot, and I can't stand looking at the fire parts.

R410, I'm not R406 but technically yes, Equity will allow that. It's done with a lot of provisions.
[quote](3) Nudity at Auditions (Principal and/or Chorus Auditions) shall not be permitted except with the express written permission of Actors' Equity and shall be subject to the following guidelines:
[quote](a) Actor shall not disrobe, in whole or in part, until after the Actor has been auditioned as a Principal Actor or Chorus Singer and/or Chorus Dancer; and,
[quote](b) A Stage Manager or an official Equity representative must be present; and,
[quote](c) The direct professional and artistic capacity of all persons present must be attested to by the Producer in writing to Equity at the time the written permission is requested (i.e., Producer, Director, Choreographer).
See the catch is, Equity has to agree to allow it.
On the other hand, SAG/AFTRA for film/tv etc.
[quote]A performer may not be fully nude or perform simulated sex acts in any audition. If nudity is required for a role, it is permissible for a producer to request to view a performer’s partially exposed body during the audition process in a “modesty garment audition”
And (as a summary) beyond that, only essential casting people may see it, you can always bring a friend or anyone else you want (pretty much) with you to make you feel more comfortable, you can only photograph it with an actual camera if the person gives permission (Etc.) and it has to be the FINAL audition.
All of this goes out the window if the role is actually just being naked (like a body double.)
[quote]I've read "Take Me Out" is in the works as a movie.
It's been "in the works" for about 18-ish years and nothing has come of it. At one point Ben Affleck was trying to get the rights. If the play is a hit this go-round then it's more likely to happen thanks to streaming services, BUT as for frontal nudity by the actors -- they'd do it -- with prosthetics or something else. I seriously doubt any actor big enough to book it for a film would agree to showing their junk unless everyone is played by Chris Messina at which point he'd probably insist on it.

It's hard to avoid the full frontal on stage. Even if they raise a wall to waist height the balcony could probably still see. The movie won't have to show anything.

R428, his cock was beautiful. I saw him in Take Me Out. But did you see him in this downtown one-man play called Afterclap? It took place in this tiny theater and the play started with him with his ass to the audience, waking up, turning over and revealing a condom on his wilting erection. He pulled the condom off (with effort), then he walked into the audience to pee offstage. The cock passed me and it was mesmerizing--large, with a big cut head. His body was beautiful. He peed and walked past us again and the thing still had some stiffness.

Back in college (Syracuse, 1980s), the theater department staged 'Equus.' The small actor who played Alan Strang was cute enough, but the director decided to darken the stage lighting during the nude scenes.
But what truly fascinated me was the strikingly handsome and tall guy portraying the main horse (a few had been recruited from the athletics dept.). The wire head-pieces were enough of a fetish, but the costume designer had all the horse/men shirtless in various-tinted form-fitting brown corduroy pants with flared cuffs to resemble hooves (high metal-framed boots).
At one point after the main 'horse' gets 'ridden' by Alan, I noticed a more pronounced bulge in the 'horse's pants. I didn't see him get hard on a repeat viewing closing night, but attended the cast party, where my flirtations got him into my (thankfully single) dorm room, where he proved his size and ride-ability.
After our terrific sex, I asked him about his possible onstage erection; he confirmed it. "Not every night," he added.
My pseudo-equine romance continued for months.

I saw THE CHANGING ROOM on Broadway. Long time ago and I don't remember much except it was all fairly unintelligible what with the heavy northern England accents, slang and rugby rules. The actors were mostly unappealing character actors and the nudity, when it happened, was as non-sexual as can be imagined. The actors' bodies were all extremely muddy, bruised and bloody. I don't specifically remember John Lithgow or Paul Rudd, though I eventually became fans of both.
I think this show was before I saw Lithgow in the wonderfully funny MY FAT FRIEND with George Rose and Lynn Redgrave and Rudd in a few shows at Circle in the Square, including the upthread mentioned THE GLASS MENAGERIE and ROMEO AND JULIET. Rudd was a very handsome and ubiquitous young leading man on the NY stages in the 1970s and I remember him also playing one of the leads in a short-lived NY-filmed TV series called BEACON HILL, an unsuccessful rip-off of UPSTAIRS/DOWNSTAIRS. I wonder why he left show business? I believe he lived a quiet married life in Connecticut as a husband, father and teacher.

His muscular butt and average but-eager-looking cock were on display. A dressing room was like a locker room to him. I remember that he was average but the head was especially attractive, for some reason. Cut. Nice, hairy chest. Mesomorph. Claims 6'. Well, maybe. Or not.
One woman he was fucking stood in the wings once downstage right when he was onstage and opened her dressing gown to him, wearing nothing underneath. I was upstage and saw her. He stumbled a bit. Not a bad guy, just completely ambition-focused and impersonal. If he was bright he didn't bother to show it.

Something like that, R475 but theater is thought of in a different way than film/tv.
You're more likely to see a name actor nude on stage than on the screen. With film and television that frontal will live on forever when it's screen-capped and placed around the internet. That opens the actor up to a whole new level of judgment (especially since it will always be attached to them in searches) and most of them don't want that.
Of course every now and then some crafty person may record something but even then it's rarely as clear as it would be if it were captured on film in an environment where it's designed to be captured.

Speaking of Mike Doyle and nudity (but not his own in this case), in 2002 he appeared in an Off-Broadway play called BURNING BLUE with a beautiful actor named Bill Dawes, who was fully nude in it. Bill got a lot of very positive reaction for his performance and his gorgeous, naked body. The New York Post ran an article by Michael Riedel about some backstage drama at the show. It mentioned Dawes' ample endowment, and after that article appeared, Mike said -- not with malice at all, but with humor -- "Now everybody wants to hire Bill Dawes!"
I was going to link to the article, but I don't want to give the Post any traffic, so here is the first part of it, and I'll post the second part momentarily.
NAKED AGGRESSION – ‘BURNING’ GOES DOWN IN FLAMES
There was plenty of drama at “Burning Blue,” D.M.W. Greer’s off-Broadway play about the hot-button issue of gays in the military.
Unfortunately for the critics and audiences who found its take on the don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy rather tiresome, most of the drama took place off-stage.
During the short but volatile run of “Burning Blue,” which closed this weekend, the actors clashed bitterly with the director (in one instance, over the size of an actor’s penis), stage managers yelled at actors for not sticking to the script – and one performer was dismissed for punching a hole in his dressing room wall.
One actor pins the blame for the “toxic” backstage environment on director John Hickok and an “inexperienced” producer, George De Marco.
“We were a ship without a captain,” says the actor.
De Marco declined comment, but Hickok says if anyone is at fault, it’s the actors.
“They changed the script and the blocking during the run, which is prohibited by Actors Equity,” he says. “They experimented with stuff on stage, and they ignored the stage managers when they were told to stop.”
The director butted heads with several cast members, especially Bill Dawes, an up-and-coming young actor who was widely praised for his performance as Air Force pilot Charlie Trumbo.
Dawes appeared naked on stage, and as nightly gasping from the audience attested, he is amply endowed.
On at least one occasion, he came on stage even more endowed than usual.
Hickok accused him of “fluffing” himself before the show and told him not to do it again.
Says Dawes, “I hate to break it to him, but I never fluffed. Given the comments he made in rehearsal, maybe he has penis envy.”
The actor says Hickok regularly made fun of his God-given attributes, calling him “Big Charlie” and snickering, “Why don’t you put a harness on that thing?”
|by Anonymous||reply 511||06/12/2021|
Part two of article referenced above:
Two sources support Dawes’ account, one saying, “I suppose it’s better to be on the receiving end of big-penis comments than small-penis comments, but it made Bill feel self-conscious and it was awkward for the rest of us.”
Hickok insists he never made such remarks. “The only thing I ever did was give him a note about his flaccidity,” he says. “Actors like to make the most of their assets – but in this case, it was inappropriate.”
Another point of contention was Dawes’ underwear.
He was directed to wear Happy Face underwear, but sometimes came on stage wearing American flag underwear because it got a bigger laugh.
One night, a stage manager chewed him out during the performance for the costume change.
Dawes yelled back and, in a huff, threw Ricola mints at the stage manager. According to Hickok, he also punched “a basketball-sized hole in the dressing room wall.”
Dawes was dismissed the next day, but several of the actors, led by the show’s star, Chad Lowe, rallied to his defense, and he was allowed to perform this past weekend.
“I did not throw any mints,” says Dawes, adding that the damage to the wall was minimal.
Said one of his fellow actors: “A lot of things led up to the altercation, and we felt Bill was not really at fault. He’s a consummate professional and a very talented actor, and we didn’t want to lose him.”
This actor says the cast “felt Hickok and the management were blaming us for the bad reviews.”
Hickok regrets that “Burning Blue” was an unhappy experience for the cast and says he’d like to “take them out for a beer and put it all behind us.”

I think is R499 is more than likely correct, because a couple of articles about Mike mention that before going to Julliard in 1994, he had obtained a B.S. degree in economics from Georgetown University. And there's a candid photo of him in Georgetown's 1990 annual with the notation "CAS '90" - which means "College of Arts & Sciences Class of 1990." .. And since most people graduate from college at age 21-22, that would correlate to having been born in 1968.
But regardless of his real age, I think Mike looks great. It just makes him a hot daddy.

I saw Burning Blue and Dawes did have a long completely unabashed nude scene and was as impressive as everyone says and is a really good actor.

R508, if you had seen the play, the nude scene was a spoof of gratutious male nudity. In fact, when Mike comes out, the other actor, playing the queen Mr. Charles of Palm Springs, proclaims, "And now...gratuitous male nudity!" It was MEANT to be gratuitous. And it was also very funny.

I’m not R508, but I saw the play and I thought the nudity was unfunny and actually embarrassing. And I say this as someone who usually loves nudity onstage.

r508, Rudnick has a new book out, jumping onboard the gay romance novel train.

Well, R518, that wasn't true for a lot of the older women in the audience, I noticed, who got a big kick out of the nude scene. And they're supposed to be the pearl clutchers, not gay men.

Did B.D. Wong show the wang in "M. Butterfly"? I know he did a nude scene. If he did that would be him, Mike Doyle, & Daniel Sujata all regulars on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit "all nude on stage.
|by Anonymous||reply 521||06/12/2021|
Wong showed his ass only--that is, to the audience. He showed his dick to his co-star John Lithgow only.

I felt bad for Doyle when they wrote him out of SVU. They did a good, splashy job of it but those recurring Dick Wolf paychecks often meant the difference as to whether an an actor could afford to live in Manhattan or had to move to Staten Island or New Jersey.

Mike Doyle is a recurring character on NEW AMSTERDAM.

Yes, it was during a season finale, his character got stabbed in the heart and he got a lot publicity for it. But I bet he would have rather had the regular paycheck.

Not when it comes to Staten Island. There are too many other places to live.
|by Anonymous||reply 532||06/12/2021|
Staten Island is also very Republican, almost like being in many parts of upstate NY. Quite a lot of actors don't want to deal with that as well, plus possibly a train or bus ride to the ferry, then a subway ride to midtown where most theaters are.

Yes, actors are very intolerant.

R523, OP's post specifies actors who have gone "completely nude" on stage. So it presumably means those who have done full frontal and not just ass.

Did anyone see the notorious 1999 CORPUS CHRISTI by Terrence McNally at Manhattan Theatre Club? IIRC young Anson Mount as Jesus and Josh Lucas as Judas were both seen briefly nude. Has it been mentioned upthread?
Bless Terrence, he often gave us lovely nude scenes.

Anson Mount is a name that makes me blush even if wearing a full set of clothes, I can’t imagine what it would be like with him naked.

Jesse Williams recently confirmed on tv "Take Me Out" is coming to Broadway soon and he'll be naked in it. Very good lookin guy -- hope no more tattoos besides those on his legs. Why tamper with an already smokin' bod?

The cast for Take me out may change again...scheduling conflicts.
I hope none of them shave their junk, I would ask for a refund.

Jesse Williams is the star and cleared his schedule and left his show for it, and seems like the only attractive one anyway.

I thought Robert M. Jimenez, playing one of the two Latino guys, was one of the hottest in the shower scene in "Take Me Out" who isn't usually mentioned here.

The guys in Take Me Out need to be circumcised. If I were at the final nude auditions I would eliminate anybody who's intact. It's not right to inflict uncircumcised penises on audiences. Nobody wants to see that.

There should be signs in the theater lobbies warning if there are uncircumcised penises to be seen in the performance.
