From the press release:

The Glass Protege
Theater Two (Chicago)
Giant Cherry Productions in association with Glitterati Productions
Visiting Company

20th February – 29th March 2015

Hollywood 1949. In an era of stifling movie production restraints and stars kept under oppressive control by their bosses, innocent and naive young actor Patrick Glass, newly arrived in Hollywood, feels the full force of the studios’ brute career-destroying power when he embarks on a scandalous love affair with his famous male co-star – the brooding and enigmatic heartthrob Jackson Harper…
As the Hollywood powers-that-be and the prevailing social morality clamp down on this unacceptable romance and decide to tear it apart, the ramifications will still be felt forty years later in 1989 when German mail order bride Ava meets her father-in-law Pat, a bitter and reclusive former actor – and gradually uncovers the secrets and truth of his past…
A powerful drama about the money, image and power obsessed ‘Hollywood machine’.
Warning: Contains strong language and scenes of full frontal male nudity.

  1. If anyone is interested, I saw Glass Protege this evening. The play itself left a little to be desired. The romance plot between Pat (Chazie Bly) and Harp (Baird Brustcher) was a bit cliche and needed much more development. The acting for several characters (Harp, George, and Nella) left much to be desired. But in general, it was an interesting “old hollywood” style romance plot and the story involves both historic (1949) and “contemporary” (1989) storylines. Pat (both the young and older actor), Candice, and Ava were all well acted and engaging. Overall, I found the play to be enjoyable.

    With regard to nudity: Both Chazie and Baird went fully nude in two scenes. In Act One, Scene 4, Baird strips naked in front of both Chazie and the Candice character. He has a muscular hairy body with trimmed pubes and an average sized cut penis and full, tight balls. He’s naked in this scene for about 3-4 minutes (Included walking around the set and sitting on a couch with Chazie).

    In Act One, Scene 6, Chazie does a full nude slow strip, with his back to the audience. The strip lasts about a minute or so, going from fully dressed in a tux, to fully nude. If you sit audience right, you will see full-frontal. Otherwise, everyone (regardless of seat) will enjoy him nude from the rear.

    In Act Two, Scene 3, both Chazie and Baird start the scene fully nude, but covered in a bed (under the covers). Eventually, Chazie gets out of bed, treating the audience left to a full frontal view. He has a lean, hairless body, with trimmed pubes, an average, thin, cut penis, and low hanging balls. After a few seconds, Baird gets out of bed as well and treats the audience to another full frontal view. That’s all for the nudity, but it’s definitely enjoyable and more than enough.

    The theater only sells general admission tickets, so you can select your seat if you get there early enough. Regardless of where you sit, you should be able to see both actors fully nude. If you want to see the frontal view of Chazie at the end of Act 1, sit far audience right towards the front of the stage. I sat far audience left and missed on the frontal in that scene, but it ended up being a moot point since he bared all a few scenes later.

    Overall, it’s totally worth the $40 ticket price both for the nudity, but also for a cute (if somewhat cliche and shallow) gay themed old-Hollywood style story. Nudity Rating: 5/5
