Last May of 2016, the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society performed The Tempest, co-directed by Alice Mottola and Pitr Strait, in Central Park. Many of the all female cast were nude. NY law allows for complete nudity as long as it is in a play. Top-free is always legal in NY as long as it isn’t for commercial purposes.
Why’d they do it? The OCoEdPFA wants to advance their goal of normalizing the naked female form. And I think that’s a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Need to do that for the male form as well. Like this performance of Hamlet.
All female cast performs Shakespeare’s Tempest in Central Park nude.
