“And the portions are so large!”

A parterre reader just back from the matinee of Powder Her Face relates this story of two elderly ladies seated in the second row, barely arms-length from the stageful of naked male extras who invaded the Duchess’s hotel room.  

As the lights come up for intermission…

First Little Old Lady: “It was really interesting seeing all those different penises. They were all different shapes and sizes.”

Second Little Old Lady: “And colors!”

    At the City Opera in the old days (ante-Steel) there were so many shows with full nudity that I can’t remember them all. But the largest penis on display was surely in “Doctor Faustus” on a super playing the part of Adam (there was also a naked Eve, not that anyone here would care) He rose out of a coffin, as I recall. Even baritone Bill Stone was impressed: “Is that a schlong, or WHAT!” Hegge’s “Dead Man Walking” opened with a scene of two naked supers getting it on in the back of a convertible. In the premier of “Rasputin” the chorus was invited to strip by the director, Frank Corsaro, if they felt comfortable, and some did to one extent or another. And then there was the case of the “Naked Youth” in “Moses und Aron” who complained he had been groped during a black-out. Round up the usual suspects.

    Sometimes heterosexuals are so strange!
