Commentaires : “The Full Monty” started life as a 1997 British film, directed by Peter Cattaneo. Set in Sheffield it was a non-musical comedy which managed to deal seriously with subjects like unemployment, father’s rights, depression, impotence, homosexuality, working-class culture and suicide. The musical version changed the setting to Buffalo, New York, but stayed very close to the film, changing some names and introducing a few new characters.
The musical opened on Broadway in October 2000 and ran for 769 performances. The London cast included six of the original Broadway cast members and received excellent notices. Dora Bryan was replaced after 12 weeks (due to “filming commitments”) by Lynda Baron, and after the agreed six months, the American leads were replaced with David Ganly (Dave), Cornell John (Noah), Ben Richards (Jerry), Paul Keating (Ethan), Samuel James (Malcolm) and Tony Timberlake (Harold). It ran for 9 months.
