Mild Spoiler … I respectfully disagree that the nudity is unnecessary, especially in the second act where what happens in that scene is pivotal to what happens in the rest of the play. It’s not just ‘discomfort’ that a character feels here; he feels threatened and violated, and that informs his subsequent actions. Not staging this scene as it was staged here (and as, I believe, it was staged in the original) would take the audience further out of the action; I think it would appear to be a coy and timid directorial decision and thus an even greater distraction. The scene might be staged with an opaque plexiglass barrier of some kind so that actors are clearly visible only above the waist and below the knees so that full nudity would be suggested rather than explicit, but that, too, seems timid and just plain silly. It’s just a shame that this recording incident happened, and that at least one person in an adult audience could not be trusted.
