The Full Monty

Best friends Jerry Lukowski and Dave Bukatinsky are in a tight spot. The once thriving steel mills where they worked have all shut down, and the spirits of the denizens of Buffalo are dour. But when a touring Chippendales dance revue gets the community wives all a-titter, the duo hatch a scheme that could save their skins. Enlisting four of their fellow unemployed buddies, they decide to one-up Chippendales with a male stripping routine that leaves nothing to the imagination, otherwise known as "The Full Monty." Bawdy laughs and surprising tenderness abound as the pack of average Joes overcome their anxieties and learn to be fearless and frisky while the town rallies behind them.

Based on the hit 1987 film, the musical adaptation of The Full Monty transplants the story from Sheffield, England to Buffalo, New York, sparing audiences the hassle of having to lug their protocol droids to the theater. In its original Broadway run, the musical landed nine Tony Award nominations, and David Yazbeck's score won a Drama Desk Award for "Outstanding Music." Accompanying the libretto is a book from four-time Tony Award-winner Terrance McNally, whose previous film-to-musical adaptations include Kiss of the Spider Woman and Catch Me if You Can. The songs themselves follow the men's journey from schubs to showmen with pelvis-gyrating tunes such as "Michael Jordan's Ball," the funky and lascivious "The Goods," and the rousing finale, "Let it Go."
