Music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Book by Terrance McNally.
Based on the hit film of the same name, The Full Monty follows the fortunes of six unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York.With no job, money or prospects, they are fed up.
When the men spy their wives and other local women going crazy over a group of male strippers, an idea begins to emerge. Overcoming their jealousy and feelings of emasculation, they decide to make some quick cash by forming their own act-a team of male strippers with ‘real man’ bodies. However, their rehearsals are not easy.
As they prepare for the performance of their lives, they are tested and exposed, both physically and emotionally. Overcoming their fears, self-consciousness, and inner demons, the men realise that they are strong together and find solace in their friendship.
This gives them the courage to finally ‘let it go’ and reveal all!
