Pleasure Man


"Pleasure Man": Pleasureman is the debut album by Swedish singer Günther. The album was originally released in Sweden in 2004, and an uncensored American version was released by Warner Bros. Records in 2006. In 2007, the album was released in Japan.


Pleasure Man was a 1928 play by Mae West. As per tradition, it opened outside of Manhattan at the Bronx Opera House September 16 and then showed in Queens, New York at the Boulevard Theatre. Its Broadway debut was October 1, 1928 at the Biltmore Theatre. After the show, police arrested the entire cast of 56 after a performance at the Biltmore Theatre and they were charged with indecency. The events stirred the media and the Evening Post ran the headline "Mae West raid open crusade to purify stage; mayor Walker alleged sponsor of drive to purify Broadway". An injunction allowed for a matinee performance the next day, but even with some bits of the show cut out, it was raided again, this time during the performance, and the cast rearrested.
