This all-American Broadway treatment of the all-British comedy hit may have cheek (not to mention the bare rear cheeks of its steelworkers-turned-strippers) to relocate the action from Sheffield to Buffalo, NY, but it works!

The production, featuring music and lyrics by David Yazbeck and a script by American playwright Terence McNally, is staged and designed by the original Broadway creative team, headed by director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell.

At the Academy Awards in March 1998, host Billy Crystal parodied the year's top five Best Film nominees, choosing 'Hello Dolly' for his send-up of 'The Full Monty'. It confirmed what scores of producers around the world had begun to realise, that the film would make a great musical.

Warm-hearted and generous, it's a real crowd-pleaser and total pleasure.
