The Full Monty
The Full Monty is the Americanized staged version of the 1997 British film of the same name. It boasts a book by Terrence McNally and a score by David Yazbek and was nominated for nine Tony awards, including Best Musical when it stunned its way onto Broadway in 2000. The Full Monty follows six down-on-their luck steelworkers, relocated to Buffalo, New York, who are desperately seeking employment and a paycheck to support their families—until they come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them.
