A raucous, pop-rock musical send-up of gender expectations and stereotypes.

Based on the cult hit film of the same name, “The Full Monty” is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and the most highly anticipated number of any show.  The powerhouse team of Terrence McNally (Ragtime) and David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) cook up a crowd-pleaser that both entertains and grabs your heart.

While spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out”, a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo, New York State, see how much they enjoy watching male strippers.  Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold way to make some quick cash.  In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed, not merely physically but emotionally.  As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go”.

“The Full Monty” is a story full of heart.  Right to the end, audiences will be wondering if these lovable misfits will really pull it off.  With a raucous mix of razor-sharp humour and toe-tapping pizzazz, this heart-warming, upbeat comedy is a big hit.
