The Argyle Theatre, Long Island’s newest year-round professional theatre presented the hit Broadway musical The Full Monty. Based on the 1997 film of the same name, with music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Terrence McNally.
While spying on their wives at a “Girls’ Night Out,” a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they’re stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to “let it go.”
Directed by Evan Pappas, with choreography by Eugenio Contenti and music direction by Ethan Andersen
