In his first new play since 1998’s religious fable Corpus Christi, Terrence McNally offers a meditation on art and opera: ”Full Frontal Nudity” visits Florence, where a tour guide (a charming Isabella Rossellini) interprets Michelangelo’s David for three awestruck Americans; ”Prelude & Liebestod” probes the psyche of a sex-crazed conductor (ex-Walton Richard Thomas, in a bravura turn). McNally loves big issues and larger-than-life characters: Think of his flaws-and-all Maria Callas (Master Class); his matter-of-fact depiction of AIDS in Love! Valour! Compassion! That he humanizes such lofty subjects continues to surprise and delight. (212-279-4200)
