17/06/1969 "Oh! Calcutta!" opens at the Eden Theatre in New York

Oh! Calcutta! is an avant-garde theatrical revue, created by British drama critic Kenneth Tynan. The show, consisting of sketches on sex-related topics, debuted Off-Broadway in 1969. The show sparked considerable controversy at the time, because it featured extended scenes of total nudity, both male and female.
