Out of state nudity: TWENTIETH CENTURY WAY

Tom Jacobson’s play will be playing, this time in Fort Lauderdale

From the press release:

Empire Stage & Island City Stage Present

The Twentieth-Century Way
Thursday, August 09, 2012 through Sunday, September 09, 2012

An ambitious, eye-opening tale of gay persecution, circa 1914.

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission

“The Twentieth Century Way” was awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, garnering critical accolades from publications like the New York Times and Variety. Based on a little-known incident in history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for “social vagrancy” in Long Beach, California circa 1914.

Warning: This play contains male nudity.



  1. Saw the show. Small but good. Well directed and acted. Not quite the bodies you want to see, per se, but very naked in the end. They perform the last 10-minutes totally nude.
