Ah, but "The Pirate Queen" is a musical. Are you sure you don't want to try "The Producers" or "Spamalot"? Lots of men laugh it up at both of those...and women, too.

Your subject made me laugh! I don't know any hetero men who go to musicals willingly, they've got to be dragged, kicking and screaming!

Avenue Q is a musical, though with profanity and full puppet nudity.

Little Dog Laughed is a biting comedy, albeit about a closeted gay Hollywood actor and his lesbian agent. There's no singing though.

I wasn't trying to be deragatory to homosexuals, just not a big fan of singing and dancing, and what-not....

Spamalot hysterical though it has singing and dancing in it. Also, my husband and son enjoyed The Producers.

Umm...most musicals involve singing and dancing.

I frankly find it odd that an "expert" on this forum would post such a narrow-minded question.

Just my opinion.

Perhaps you should stay in Niagara Falls.

I have to admit that I too like what NFG is asking.

Sat thru a musical and could only stomach 5 songs, before giving up.

It starts off as fun, then slowly becomes mad.

It so much, I am sure that even if they want to go pee, they will sing a song about how the loo is never free..... or why they have to pee so many times....

Are there any shows on broadway with just 5 songs and more of a story line - more like a skit or pantomine?????

Why would anyone think this question is narrowminded?

Would it be considered narrowminded if a homosexual member had asked a similar question?

Somehow I doubt it.

By the way,have a great trip NFG.!!

I myself was very put off by the question -- and I'm a straight woman Were I a gay man, I bet I would find it even more offensive. No gay man I know would ask that question, which could have been simply -- and much more accurately -- phrased as "Broadway - No Musicals... Are there any non-musical shows with action or comedy (profanity OK)?"

Instead, it and NFG's off-handed follow-up, convey the pigeonholing, dismissive view that "real" men aren't interested in "singing, dancing, and what-not", all that's for limp-wrristed pansies. Akin to asking "Broadway for White Men... Are there any shows where the people aren't all on welfare, driving expensive cars and having children they can't afford at taxpayers' expense?" Blech.
