Uptown Players: The Full Monty at Kalita Humphreys Theater
3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75219
The Full Monty follows six down-on-their luck steelworkers who are desperately seeking employment and a paycheck to support their families - until they come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties, they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them. The Americanized musical stage version of the 1997 British film, The Full Monty boasts a book by Terrence McNally and a score by David Yazbek. It was nominated for nine Tony awards, including Best Musical, when it shimmied its way onto Broadway in 2000. The Full Monty will be directed by Cheryl Denson.
