From the press release:

Your Mother’s Copy of the Kama Sutra

March 28, 2014 – May 11, 2014
Peter Jay Sharp Theater

Written by   Kirk Lynn
Directed by  Anne Kauffman


Carla agrees to marry Reggie on one condition: to break down any walls between them, they’ll reenact their individual sexual histories with one another, good and bad, for better or worse.  Years later, these stories bring unexpected hope to their household, now forced to confront those barriers a second time.  Kirk Lynn’s tough-love comedy navigates the boundaries of intimacy, finding startling empathy in the story of a father hell-bent on saving his family.

  1. Don’t hold your breath. The audition notice doesn’t mention nudity at all. Of course anything could happen, but …

  2. As suspected, there is no male nudity in Your Mother’s Copy of the Kama Sutra, despite its sexy title and all its tantalizing come-hither ads. Milu: Please consider not mentioning shows at all unless 1) they say say they have nudity (like Wild) 2) they’re productions of plays known to have nudity (like The Big Funk) or 3) Their audition notices require nudity of a particular character (like The Correspondent). If they fail all those criteria, nudity is less “possible,” as you put it, than NOT GONNA HAPPEN, as evidenced by Tales from Red Vienna and Your Mother’s Copy of the Kama Sutra. In other words, don’t help to sell tickets to shows that do not serve our interests. I’ve wasted hundreds of dollars this season on wild goose chases when I should have been pursuing ganders that were sure things. Less speculation + More research = More cock.

  3. I have been reporting about male nudity onstage since 2001 back starting at Yahoo groups. Here are the things that I have learned:
    1. Not all production advertises there is nudity on their play.
    2. Ensemble theater companies that have their regular rotating actors don’t need to put casting notice.
    3. It is just escaping my mind right now but plays like Shakespeare’s plays have had staging that had their actors in the nude.
    The bottom line: If you look at the tag POSSIBLE MALE NUDITY, it is your call if you want to take the risk and see the show. Otherwise, you can follow your formula or wait for the other readers to confirm if there is nudity in the play.
