Based on the hit film of the same name and directed by TITG veteran Ken Centers (“Chicago” and “Urinetown”) THE FULL MONTY is a sublime send up of gender expectations and stereotypes in this raucous pop-rock musical that pushes the musical theatre envelope. While spying on their wives at a ‘Girls’ Night Out,’ a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo see how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work, and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed 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 they’re stronger as a group, and the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go.”
THE FULL MONTY is a story full of heart. Masterfully balancing hilarity and emotional turmoil, the musical is both engaging and entertaining.
Songs include: Scrap, It’s a Woman’s World, Big Black Man, You Rule My World and Let It Go.
