About this show

Dr. Sex, the new musical comedy, makes its New York premiere. The show has a score by Larry Bortniker, with book by Larry Bortniker and Sally Deering. Ethan McSweeny directs, with choreography by Mark Esposito. Patrick Vaccariello serves as musical supervisor. Dr. Sex is the cleanest show about sex in the history of musical comedy. Set in the 1930s and '40s in Bloomington, Indiana, the musical explores the loving relationship between Dr. Alfred Kinsey, his wife, Clara...and their handsome boyfriend (and lab assistant), Wally Matthews. When Professor Kinsey, tired of cataloguing American gall wasps, discovers his life's work in human sexual research, Bloomington becomes a hotbed of science and sex. Fun, sweet and outrageously screwball, with toe-tapping music and memorable lyrics, Dr. Sex is the new musical comedy for anyone who's ever had (or thought about having) "you-know-what."
