Release Date: 5 October 2007 (Rochester ImageOut Lesbian and Gay Film and Video Festival, USA)

Plot: This whimsical Off-Broadway hit musical is aptly reworked and transferred to the screen. The self-descriptively titled Naked Boys Singing is a musical revue of songs that poke fun at gay life, body image, love, loss and yearning.

As the title suggests, naked boys do sing (and dance) in this campy big-screen adaptation of one of the longest-running and most lascivious off-Broadway musical revues ever produced. Filmed in Los Angeles, this is essentially a basic recording of the live stage show, spotlighting songs such as "Fight the Urge," "The Bliss of a Bris," "Muscle Addiction," "Nothing But the Radio On," "Members Only" and "Window to Window."

NAKED BOYS SINGING! sings the praises of male nudity and the cast includes a multi-talented, racially diverse selection of singers, dancers and actors including Jason Currie, Kevin Stea (Madonna’s “Blonde Ambition” tour), Joe Souza, Joseph Keane, Phong Truong, Salvatore Vassallo, Andrew Blake James, Anthony Manough, Jaymes Hodges, and original stage cast member Vincent Zamora, who bare it all on the BIG screen.

Features songs written by Bruce Vilanch, Stephen Bates, Shelly Markum, David Pevzner, Rayme Sciaroni, Mark Winkler and Robert Schrock.

"Excellent! Campy and coy, smirky and serious...with playful wit and unabashed explicitness." - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Boisterous, giddy show kicking down the taboo of the male body with a collection of toe-tappin’ songs and enough full frontal to power 300 consecutive bachelorette parties!" - Brian Orndorff, DVD Talk
"Cute, sweet...touching. Naked Boys Singing! delivers exactly what it promises!" - Maitland McDonough, TV Guide
"Spirited. Fun. Sweet and good-natured!" - Los Angeles Times
"Sweet, über-sexy pastiche!" - Windy City Times
"Entertaining! The cast is vocally strong and visually appealing." - Sean Bugg, Metro Weekly D.C.
"If eye candy is what you’re looking for, you’ll get your money’s worth!" - Kent Turner, Film Forward
"Cleverly reveals the vulnerability of ubiquitous nudity as a window to the human soul." - Kam Williams, News Blaze
"Five stars out of five! The boys are a melting pot of fired up hunk testosterone." - Jump on Mark's List - Ft. Lauderdale
"Naked Boys Singing is a sweet lyrical lollypop!" - Desert Daily Guide
"Gleefully raunchy!" - LA Weekly
