Book by Terrence McNally
Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
Six unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, NY are low on both cash and prospects. While spying on their wives at a “girls’ night out,” the men realize just how much the women enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous and out-of-work, the group of lovable misfits devises a daring and titillating way to make some quick cash and get back on their feet. In preparing, they find themselves exposed—physically and emotionally—and must learn to conquer their fears and self-consciousness, overcome prejudices, and find strength in each other.
Based on the hit 1997 film of the same name, The Full Monty is a heartwarming, upbeat comedy that entertains and grabs your heart. Filled with honest affection and razor-sharp humor, the show also features what may be the most highly-anticipated closing number ever!

“A rags-to-riches story (minus the riches), The Full Monty is a show with heart. A rough and tumble band of misfits lay it bare and find their purpose in the most unlikely of places: Theatre! I’m excited to dive into this world of comedy, community, and comradery with our cast and crew, and look forward to bringing this story to the ASGT stage.”
