Davyn Ryall, founder and artistic director of the company Acts to Grind Theater, revisits a bilingual gay themed musical… SAUNA: The Musical! All you ever wanted to know about the guys at the sauna, but you have always been afraid to ask. With this dripping, wet, cabaret-burlesque musical and very cheerful, provocative, shameless all-male cast, you’ll wriggle with laughter until you drop and tap your feet till you melt your soles. Join Benjy on his first visit to the sauna. He seeks love, but he will realize very quickly that others are looking for something a little more ephemeral. Benjy will serve as an unintentional guide by discovering, to the delight of the audience, what is happening behind closed doors. Maurice, Teddy, David, Carl and the other sauna guests accompany Benjy through the alcoves of this neighbourhood sauna. “It is filled with masculine rudeness, sexual references, and partial nudity. … This piece is a daring musical for an adult audience that does not tend to offend easily!” warns Davyn.
