New York City
The industrial North of England was the setting for the 1997 Oscar Award-winning movie. In this brilliant, funny and touching American musical version of The Full Monty, the setting is shifted to America’s rust belt where former steel workers feel their manhood crumbling in the face of their continued unemployment. Love lives are crumbling too, as wives and girlfriends turn their attention to other models of virility. Watching this heroic band of underdogs fight to win back their world (and their women) will have you cheering — even as their eye-popping solution astounds you.
