A shocking new musical which features a cast of naked men has been shut down in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Officials at Milwaukee Police Department's Vice Control Division claim the producers for NAKED BOYS SINGING failed to request the necessary theatre permit to stage such a controversial show.

Bosses at the Milwaukee Gay Arts Center, where the risque show opened on 11 August (05), claim the venue is exempt from the permit requirement because it stages shows that benefit charities.

Show director MARK HOOKER says, "The show was closed unjustly because the licensing ordinance that the city claims was the grounds for closing us does not apply to non-profit and charitable organisations like the Milwaukee Gay Arts Center."

It's not the first time the touring revue has caused problems Naked Boys Singing also upset authorities in Puerto Rico and Georgia.
