CJ: There is no nakedness. And not a "gay Lifestyle" type performance as you mentioned. It's not x-rated and is family friendly. Just very imaginative, funny and creative. A great show.

Thanks so much. It is good to know my initial hunch on this was correct, because it sound like it will be fun. I only had to ask because...well...this is Gulfport...lol

We have attended several performances by City of Imagination and have found them to be of high quality and good taste. Some may find some of the pieces slightly provocative, but isn't that what theater is all about?

Well yes, Bob. Sort of. I think theater's purpose is defined more complicated than that, though. The fact the name has the word ''naked'' in it...and this is Gulfport...lol... it is not really a stretch to see why I might want it clarified it is family material...lol. Considering it's name, it might have been a good idea to have the phrase ''family friendly'' in the movie description...although we have seen some things here and there that claimed to be family safe but they were not.

Bob. I will share a funny local story on something related that happened to us. Twice a day, we drive back and forth to downtown St Pete and back....and usually take Central because we enjoy driving on it. Keep in mind we have only lived here just over one year. I had seen ''for months'' this sidewalk sign in front of "Art Pool'' that said they had something like 50 crafts beers. My focus was on the "craft beer"...lol. Well...not long ago...a couple weeks ago or so...I saw an article about how they were having some event there, so I saw this as a good chance to go check the place out with my wife and drink some beer. I probably saw the article on The Patch...lol. We showed up but were only intending to be out for about an hour, and they charged $20 to get in...so we passed on going in. But as my wife and I turned around to go back to the car, a quite beautiful girl with painted, "naked", and nice breasts ran right into me...lol. I did one of those ''double-takes'', practically in disbelief of what my eyes had seen and what my chest had just rubbed against. I leaned over to my wife and asked if I had just seen what I thought I had seen and she said ''yes''...and brought to my attention of what was walking down the sidewalk towards us. More lovely girls with painted breasts. They went by, and with a gulp still in my throat I thought ''hmmmmm''...and then told me wife I had changed my mind about spending the $20 and wanted to go in after all...and she dragged me back to the car...lol. It was later we figured out it was a ''gay pride'' thing. My point is...if it were just me and my wife going to this play...then we could care less if it had nudity or whatever...but we are taking my son with us also...lol.
