Theaters on both sides of the Atlantic have enjoyed resounding audience receptions to this “Americanized,” multiple award-winning musical stage version of the 1997 British film. Six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers, seeing how much their wives enjoy male strippers during “Girls Night Out,” devise a novel way to accumulate some cash – they’ll become strippers themselves, but go all the way – “the full Monty.” During the process, they are confronted with anxieties of self-esteem, physical appearance, bigotry, marriage relationships and child custody, but discover a strength in each other to face and overcome their inner demons – without even having to appear absent their underwear! Clever and tuneful melodies abound: Scrap, It’s a Woman’s World, Man, You Walk with Me, Big Black Man, You Rule My World, and a rousing finale, Let It Go! augment a story line that is frisky but heartwarming. Adult themes, but not unduly risqué. You’ll want to bring your mother-in-law!
