Does this “very naked musical” belong in a comedy club—or a strip club?

By Andrew Andrews

Returning to the stage for Pride Month, Camp Morning Wood is a “very naked musical” comedy about Randy—the only Professor of Colonial Queer Studies at Columbia University—who stumbles into a gay nudist camp after blowing a tire.

Encouraged by the campers to spend the weekend until the nearest garage reopens on Monday, Randy is forced to confront his own modesty, insecurities and a shallow infatuation as the camp itself confronts being razed to make room for a combined fracking operation and megachurch construction, led by a conservative senator with something to hide.

Full of puns, innuendo, obscenity and full frontal nudity, Camp Morning Wood is the most campy musical you’re likely to encounter anywhere—although given the no-holds-barred depiction of its subject matter, I can’t imagine this show would be produced anywhere outside of a major metropolitan area!

Shelton Lindsay, Chris Ogren and Thomas Delgado (not shown) round out the cast.
