Kit Harington goes full frontal; theatre to block cameras

"Kit Harington's 'shocking' nude scenes his his new West End show has reportedly forced theatre bosses to camouflage audience's cameras & even threaten legal action to anyone who tries to capture a snap of the star in his birthday suit."

"The sex scene Kit's in is quite shocking. There are lots of mirrors on stage so the audience can see his tackle from all angles."

"The scene lasts more than ten minutes & bosses seem very concerned about it being recorded and leaked online."

What does camouflaging cameras mean exactly?

'Modern audiences' are the biggest pussies of all time.....

"Recently, producers of the West End version of the play were accused of 'infantilising' audience members by giving advice on how to breathe.

The guidance states: 'Breathing is a great way to induce a feeling of calm. Try breathing in for 4-6 seconds, hold your breath for 4-6 seconds, exhale for 4-6 seconds.'"

"The website also offers 'grounding exercises', which include doing 'a body scan' to 'notice how parts of your body feel' and wiggling your fingers.

In addition, theatre-goers are advised to connect with nature, to 'plant your feet on the ground with your back supported by a chair'.The theatre has also announced that the auditorium will stay open 15 minutes after the show to give audiences a 'reflective space'.

The London production of the play, which opened on Broadway in 2019, caused uproar in February when it announced that two performances might be set aside for black theatre-goers to watch uninhibited by the 'white gaze'.

Frank Furedi, emeritus professor of sociology at the University of Kent, said: 'It is now normal to infantilise an adult audience through communicating the idea that they may well be traumatised by exposure to a drama.'

I love how they don't even mention the title of the play.

It's "Slave Play" and the whole "you will be shocked by this!!" schtick was done in NYC too. It's an ad gimmick, ladies. Producers have been doing it since the 1920s.

The moon is in the seventh house and it's absolutely fiendish to do the "blacks only" attention grabber.

The playwright is an example of the death of the academy and why it's not a good thing in many ways.

My Shit = Christopher Marlowe

It is bizarre Harrington is doing this for this play, given the author shit on him being cast in the first place

Harris was critical of casting star names just for the sake of publicity, not that he had qualms about Harrington's abilities.

Harris said he would not have agreed to his casting if Harington had wanted to “make it the Jon Snow Experience” and he had been impressed with the actor after he was recommended by another Game of Thrones star, Gwendoline Christie.

“Kit was saying ‘I don’t want this to be “Kit Harington in Slave Play”, this is an ensemble play and I’m not even the lead,’” said Harris. “He knows the weight his name carries and how that could become a distraction, if we allowed it to be.”

If any of you care to see how insufferable the playwright Jeremy O. Harris is, check out the documentary currently on HBO, "Slave Play. Not a Movie. A Play." You'll be shutting it off early into viewing- guaranteed. You'll also be glad to skip the play, Kitt's dick or not.

I’ve never seen nudity live on stage before. I’m afraid I’d gasp or giggle 🤭, so no thanks! 🙂‍↔️

To be fair, people were still pretty primitive in the 1970s.

They were just 50 years out of the silent film era and a decade since the advent of color television.

World War 2 was only "30 years ago."

Evidently this is this year's 'A Little Life', in which James Norton disrobed. Justified in its harrowing way in that case. Tedious though when a curtain-twitching 'Ooh la la' fuss is made, as if the public is still, in the age of porn on tap, titillated by the novelty of nudity.

Did New York audiences get to see ten minutes' worth of James Cusati Moyer's dong in the original Slave Play?

No one is competition to Jesse Williams r6. It was an experience being in the audience and having his giant manhood right there on stage, you could feel how the audience was transfixed.

Jesse Williams has a nice cock but he's not a great actor so he probably decided to go with a project that utilized his... talent to its fullest potential.

R24- In 2003 my father and I went to see Take Me Out on Broadway 🎭. It was sexy to see all of those good looking men completely naked on stage and at the same time embarrassing 🙈 in front of all these other people.

Loved the LA production of Slave Play! Although one of the actors was naked, it was staged such that you couldn’t see below the waist so I wonder why they aren’t similarly staging it in London in order to avoid filming from the audience.

Also, if someone really wants to capture the scene they can just use spy glasses instead of a phone

The first play I can recall as a young teenager was Hair. That had nudity. We went to see it, as a family, because my parents were half way Hippie Progressives, and there was nothing much to it. Seriously They stood up all naked singing. There was no sex, though.

That was the era before cell phones and social media r35, just get naked for the audience.

Now actors worry if they go nude on stage there will be tons of pictures plastered all over the internet of it for the world to see.

[quote]We don't usually tend to dabble in theatre reviews and criticism. However, as Kit Harington's nudity in the current West End production of Slave Play is such a hot topic we thought we'd pass along this intriguing one-word review we were given of the cast member that everyone's curious about...
