A nude, all-male Hamlet in the open air.
Presented free of charge.

Now extended to Central Park.

Walking around naked in public might seem like an insane thing to do, even if you’re the Prince of Denmark. 
But when your world is run by liars who tell you when to smile and what to wear, maybe “insane” is the only honest thing to be.

After making headlines with last summer’s celebration of the nude female form, Torn Out Theater will turn its eye to the fraught, complex world of male body image. Our bold new production of Hamlet will ask tough questions about how the male body is perceived in America today.
