"Full Monty", Stage West, Toronto, ON

Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their “girls night out”, unemployed steelworkers in Hamilton come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, good friends and great fun. There is great heart in The Full Monty – the lessons about overcoming adversity, taking charge and striving to reach dreams resonate with every audience.

Gord and I saw "The Full Monty" today at Stage West (we have a subscription).

I had seen the play more than ten years ago and love the movie so was looking forward to it.

They did an excellent job with it ... and didn't tone it down.

I've never seen THE FULL MONTY on stage, but I too, loved the movie, and I've only heard great things about the show on stage....Unfortuneatly my days of going to a theatre are over, because of health issues. I do miss it a lot, but comfort myself with the fact that I have seen so very much theatre in my lifetime, and ofcourse, been involved in many many shows. It sounds like that Theatre does great stuff!
