This critically acclaimed contemporary musical, directed by TITG veteran Darren Hurley, follows a feisty parolee following her dreams, based on a page from an old travel book, to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.

Percy (Jessica Reed, from left), Hannah (Jeanna VanDyke), and Shelby (Jennifer Yamashiro) enjoy a laugh while poring over raffle entries.

Full Monty posterBased 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.

This production contains mature themes and language and is not recommended for children.

THE FULL MONTY opens April 17 and runs through May 3.

The curtain time for evening performances is 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.

Matinee performances are at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoons.

Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for seniors (60 and over) and youths (17 and under).

Tickets may be purchased online anytime by clicking on the link below or at the box office, open one hour before each performance.
