Book by Terrance McNally. Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek.
Based on the Motion Picture released by Fox Searchlight Pictures® and written by Simon Beaufoy, produced by Uberto Pasolini, and directed by Peter Cattaneo.
Adapted from the Academy Award®-winning movie, this charming and hilarious musical follows the journey of two unemployed steelworkers desperate to make a living. When the search for work becomes hopeless, they scheme to put together a male striptease act and recruit other displaced workers to join them. The heart of this musical is the story of self-empowerment, overcoming odds, and the unbreakable bond formed within this seemingly diverse group of men who find that they have more in common than they first thought.
“The destination for girls’ night out in Southern California this month is definitely Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton. That’s where 3-D Theatricals’ revival of David Yazbek and Terrence McNally’s The Full Monty …. a lighthearted musical with a big message about believing in yourself…. kicks into high gear for the next two weekends. ” – BroadwayWorld Los Angeles (Ellen Dostal reviewed April 16)

With a can’t-miss book, a cast of true-to-life three-dimensional characters, a jazzy score and sexy, hip-thrusting, pelvis-swiveling choreography, The Full Monty delivers… contemporary musical theater at its most entertaining…”- Stage Scene LA (Steven Stanley reviewed April 17)
“3-D Theatricals brings us a no–holds–barred presentation of this titillating and heartwarming musical that offers so much more than the anticipation of “the full monty.” – Tin Pan L.A. ( Ryan M. Luevano April 23rd)
