Drury Lane Productions presents the inaugural production in its new Drury Lane Theatre at Water Tower Place, The Full Monty. The Chicago regional theatre premiere of the smash Broadway musical based on the hilarious film comedy is directed and choreographed by Broadway veteran and four time Jeff Award-winner, Jim Corti.
The Full Monty is the hilarious and heartfelt story of a father who needs to raise some quick cash to maintain custody of his son. Together with five unemployed, out-of-shape steel-mill workers from Buffalo, this unlikely group of lovable misfits hatch a desperate plan to get their lives back together requiring them to triumph over their fears, their nerves and their clothes. With a touching and funny book by Tony Award-winner Terrence McNally and a catchy pop score by David Yazbek, The Full Monty will have audiences wondering can they really pull it off. Nominated for 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical and featuring an incredible contemporary songbook, this sweet and romantic story of the resilience of the human spirit is a modern musical tale of true friendship.
