Calendar Girls: the Stage Play in New Zealand

Calendar Girls: Being naked on stage, but very tasteful | The National Business Review
It is a delightful and entertaining piece of theatre. It has heart, lots of genuine emotion and true sentimentality. The success of the show is due largely to the enthusiastic performances of the six female leads.
...The play manages to provide something between voyeurism and titillation, never giving offence, presenting the naked women in the best of all possible taste. This is a show for the prudish as well as the broadminded – maybe not too prudish, though.
Well, it is about women getting naked, after all. It's not like you didn't know what you were getting when you bought the ticket.

See another review in Auckland Now and the advance stories in the Star-Times and Auckland Now. And if you're in New Zealand, why not go?
