About The Full Monty
A raucous, pop-rock-musical about gender expectations and stereotypes..that takes it all off.
In this Americanized musical stage version adapted from the 1997 British film of the same name, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, low on both cash and prospects, decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives’ enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness, and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.
It's a raucous and touching piece of popular theatre that captures the mood of the 1980s, when a generation of men realized that their jobs-for-life in the steel industry were gone, and they were on the scrap heap.
