Photo Coverage: THE FULL MONTY Opens at The John W. Engeman Theater Northport

THE FULL MONTY played a full-hearted opening last night. Check out the photos below!

This 10-time Tony Award nominee is filled with honest affection, engaging melodies and a raucous mix of razor-sharp humor and toe-tapping pizazz... not to mention the most highly anticipated closing number in Broadway history! In need of quick cash and low on prospects, six unemployed Buffalo steelworkers come up with the outrageous idea to put on a strip act after seeing their wives' enthusiasm for a touring company of Chippendales. As they prepare for the big night, working through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie.

THE FULL MONTY features a book by Terrence McNally (Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Ragtime, Catch Me If You Can) with score and lyrics by David Yazbek (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).
