During the first quarter of the 2004 theater calendar, both the Missouri Rep's Metamorphoses
and the Minds Eye Theatre's Caligula
showed full monties in the same week. As winter thawed into spring, genitalia resurfaced in Late Night Theatre's Killings at Kamp Tittekaka
, though this venue was surprisingly the most discreet of the three. Then summer arrived, and with it the team approach to male nudity in the Unicorn's Take Me Out
. More remarkable was that the package displays were relevant to their respective plots. No, they really were. Full frontal in one show is an anomaly; in four, it's a movement.
