NAKED BOYS SINGING!
9.26.09

 

"This talented cast brings fresh sensibilities to the melodic and witty numbers...The nudity ultimately takes a back seat to the strong material and accomplished performances...Marco Infante pays thoughtful homage to rugged screen stars of yesteryear in Robert Mitchum...If there's any carping, perhaps in that the 75 minutes of fun ends much too quickly."

"Eight guys make up the ensemble, and every voice is top-notch. La creme is Marco Infante, whose rendition of Robert Mitchum is so very sexy and passionate...It's fun, it's alive and it's totally worth the memories...underneath all that exposition there's a lot of heart."

NEW REVIEW GO: NAKED BOYS SINGING

9.28.09

 

 

"One wondered if the show would hold up...not to worry. This new production, featuring eight talented and very naked men proves that when performed with wit, insouciance and skill, the show still has the capacity to charm. It's exuberant, and full of joie de vivre, and when the actors are having fun, the audience is having fun."

NAKED BOYS SINGING!:A NUDE MUSICAL REVUE
9.18.09

 

"What a wonderful show! Full of great songs, great looking guys and it goes by in no time. Some of my favorite songs where "Robert Mithcum" -an ode to the guys who were a little less than perfect. Sung and danced with a great verve by the altogether wonderful Marco Infante. Kudos to the director Bob Schrock and to the Musical director. Highly recommended!"

NBS: Q&A with the PRODUCER
9.4.09

 

 

Adelante:How and where did you find the current guys of "Naked Boys Singing!" ?

 

Producer: A great voice is the first and most importnat requirement and you must be able to move well. If you had a great voice and can dance, well having a great body is just the whip cream on the cake.

 

Adelante: Can you tell me about the performers and one special trait about each one?

 

Producer: ...Marco Infante [is] sweet, great voice and a great dancer.

REVIEW: HANGIN' OUT: THE NAKED MUSICAL
1.18.09

 

"Hangin' Out is a delightful and original theatre production unlike anything I have ever seen (wink) before. The performances and the subject matter are brilliantly written and performed by Eric B. Anthony, Karole Foreman, Marco Infante, Brent Keast and company. The whole cast does a wonderful job not only acting and singing but making the audience feel at home while they help us to reconnect with what we all have underneath, yet clothe ourselves and tend to forget. Truth is, the musical numbers were so intricately thought out and well performed, my thoughts transcended and I began to understand this human experience beyond the curtain of my own projections and expectations in life while clothed. This is a performance not to be missed!"

THEATRE REVIEW: HANGIN' OUT
1.14.09

 

 

"A strong, six-member performing ensemble revisits [Schrock's] idea [Naked Boys Singing] in a heterosexual context...the ensemble is beautifully balanced, so good that one leaves yearning to see each actor-singer in [another] vehicle.

"...the versatile...and fearless cast are invaluable assests. [They] unify contrasting styles with unselfconscious panache...Marco Infante is a shrewd singing comedian....[With] the talent afoot and the material's pizzaz, 'Hangin' Out' may well gain a following."

COLLEGE REFERENCE LETTER
2.20.03

 

"Marco can be described as spirited, talented and creative. He independently pursues work and performance opportunities that allow him to stay involved in the 'business'... this quality to motivate himself, to build his own confidence in the face of rejection will allow him to remain a 'player' in this field...he wants it and he has the talent and drive to deal with the challenges that any performer faces in this profession, but in my opinion  it is a rare combination."

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY DID IT

"The show was excellent! I was so impressed at the quality of the production. The actors were great. They could carry a tune - were wonderful dancers - and had the courage and professionalism to "pull it off."....to answer the question on your mind - YES - they do show you The Full Monty. Yes - the full house of Bible Belt Tallahasseeans roared and loved the show - especially the women."

FULL MONTY: NOT JUST A TEASE

"Each six men excelled, expressing their distinct personalities through character voice, posture, and swagger....lead Marco Infante formidably played the role of Jerry Lukowski...the ensemble thrived on what many musicals lack nowadays: spontaneity, fun, and a general sense that they haven’t rehearsed to death."
