The Naked Truth with Sean Stephens

Sean Stephens is an actor/singer/songwriter who hails from South Carolina. He peppers his vast litany of characters, comedy, and compositions with what he learned growing up in the south. 

Sean is part of the revival of Queer musical comedy, CAMP MORNING WOOD, returning Off-Broadway, JUNE 4-20
AT ASYLUM THEATRE, 307 West 26thStreet. Conceived and directed by Marc Eardley, the critically acclaimed musical comedy features a book and lyrics by Jay Falzone, music by Trent Jeffords, Derrick Byars, Matt Gumley and Jeff Thomson with arrangements and orchestrations by Gumley and Jeffords. It also features nudity! https://campmorningwoodthemusical.com.

Camp Morning Wood tells the story of Randy, who – at a crossroads in his life, AND after a hellish 30th birthday – finds himself (thanks to a blown tire) at the front gate of a humble nudist camp. The camp itself is at a crossroads thanks to threats of closing by a tyrannical, right-wing Christian Senator. Randy is launched into a weekend adventure of titillating tunes, quirky campers, and soul-searching. Together they must find a solution to save the camp … and accept themselves. Randy and the campers bare it all – inside and out – in this wild cross between Rocky Horror and Wizard of Oz. Morning Wood takes “camp” to a new level.

Featured in the cast are Anthony Logan Cole, Thomas Delgado, Da’Merius Ford, Shelton Lindsay, Chris Ogren, Sean Stephens, and Brady Vigness. Premiering June 4 at Asylum Theater, 307 W 26th St, New York City. Evening and matinee performances and even late night showings include: June 4 @ 9:30; June 5 @ 11:00 p.m.; June 11 & 18 @ 9:30 p.m.; June 12 & 19 @ 2:00 & 5:00 p.m.; June 13 & 20 @ 2:00 p.m. Produced by Get Naked, LLC; General Management by Lyle Sterne, Anthony Logan Cole

Ai spoke with Sean before he put on his costume-er-make-up.

Is this the first time you’ve done a nude show? AND how does it feel to do a show like this?

I originated Derek in the last production so I’m excited to return in a new role. Honestly, the main focus is what you’re doing character wise. When you’re in the moment it doesn’t really even feel like you’re naked, you’re too focused on doing what you have to story and job wise.

OK, so we’re coming for the dicks and staying for the story… What’s the story of Camp Morning Wood?

It’s just an incredibly gay musical. It’s such a funny and out of left field story that I think it works. The absurdity is the point.

What’s one thing that makes this a show suitable for everyone? Or is there?  

The resonating theme that we all want to be accepted for how we are. Baring it all (your heart) and being yourself is the most important thing you can do. 

What’s next for you – clothed or not?

I’ll just be riding the re-opening wave. I’m looking forward to being able to make art after such a long break.
