Six friends. One outrageous idea. And a chance to make their dreams come true. 

Written by Tony Award®-winners Terrence McNally (Ragtime) and David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit), this Broadway hit musical tells a story that’s full of heart. You’ll be rooting for these down-on-their-luck pals from Buffalo, and wondering up until the very end if the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to bare it all.

Based on the Motion Picture released by Fox Searchlight Pictures and written by Simon Beaufoy, produced by Uberto Pasolini and directed by Peter Cattaneo.

The Full Monty is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. mtishows.com

The musical The Full Monty is set in 1989 and follows a group of blue-collar steel workers. Contains strong language, adult themes, attempted self-harm, and brief nudity. We will continue to provide information and resources about the production and encourage audience members to use their personal judgement about attendance.
