Naked truth

Harvey Fierstein, at the opening night of Hair at Shakespeare in the Park, an outdoor production staged in New York City's Central Park, was asked if he would go nude onstage. Fierstein, the atheist and humanities humanist who in 2003 starred as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray and as Tevye in the 2005 revival of Fiddler on the Roof, responded to the magazine New York (25 Aug 08):

Oh, honey. In 1972, I was in Satyricon at La Mama, and we were all naked. I held a jewel in my anus. We had a big orgy scene where we wore glow-in-the dark penises and vaginas. We held them up in the air while we actually had sex onstage. I don't know how you can get more naked than that.
