When I saw TAKE ME OUT, they were still doing vacc checks - they may now since its a not for profit, not a normal Broadway house. I showed my vacc card outside on my phone, then put my phone back in my pocket. When I entered the lobby, I was asked if I had a phone. I was honest and said yes, and they put it in the little bag for me. I could have easily have said no. And taken my phone in, ready to whip out. Short of using a scanner, and stopping everyone who sets of the metak detector, and forcing them to show their phones, I dont see an answer - though ....

As when I saw the original production, the male frontal nudity in this play seems more than gratuitous. There is no dramatic value in our seeing this. The point is the discomfort of some players with this, when they have a gay teammate. So the characters have to see the frontal nudity we don't, A bare butt is much of less of an 'event' in the world today. The identical point could be made with us seeing the butt, the characters seeing the genitals - probably made better, becasue teh frontal nudity in one way or another takes every audience memnber out of the play for a second or three.

But they get to make a big deal out of it, and get more and more press, getting more and more people who may just want to ctach thi naughty glimpse, to buy tickets. The use oif male of frontal nudity in TAKE ME OUT seems designed to sell ticets, and Seocnd Stage's constant 'horror' at people taking pictures is just more fodder for their PR machine.
