Subject: UA's The Full Monty Bares Heart & Humor - Not Just Skin
Let's just get rid of the elephant in the room, shall we? While underwear & inhibitions are eventually shed in UA Arizona Repertory Theatre's production of THE FULL MONTY, the moment this show is named for shows discretion & is done safely - for actors & audience members alike - through the magic of theatre.
Make no mistake, though. This musical set in Buffalo, NY, adapted from the 1997 British-set film, earned 10 Tony Award nominations on Broadway. The male cast of characters' real nakedness comes from their insecurities as they journey forth to try to come to terms with their needs & their flaws, all the while being either encouraged or petrified by the women in their lives.
You'll feel empathy for these men - & you'll cheer them on for more reasons than you think. Come laugh & be entertained by tomorrow's stars today in THE FULL MONTY! Press release attached.

UA’s Arizona Repertory Theatre presents THE FULL MONTY
Book by Terrence McNally, Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
directed by Danny Gurwin
TUCSON, AZ - After seeing their wives’ fervor for a Chippendales touring group, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers who are low on prospects & cash decide to create a strip act for a local club. Jerry, who leads the ensemble, claims their act will be better than the Chippendales because they will go “the full monty” – strip all the way. As they rehearse, each character decides if he will or he won’t, & why. Funny & endearing, the men discover something that will not only change their lives financially, but will help them regain their self-esteem & enrich their bonds with those they love.
