All I meant by that statement is that I personally was surprised that Steppenwolf was scheduled to do a play this coming December (Dance Nation) in which nudity and excessive foul language had been featured in productions of this play done in other cities. Other Chicago regional theatres like Goodman and Victory Gardens in the past have either toned down or eliminated nudity and/or excessive foul language when they have staged plays which in New York those activities were featured. However, I have never known Steppenwolf to tone down controversial material when they present plays previously done in New York.
I have never seen a production of Linda Vista. When I made my initial post (the one you are quoting), I was unaware that the Steppenwolf production featured full frontal nudity.
