- The Full Monty gets dramatic

THE FULL MONTY previews this evening at the Prince Of Wales theatre. Transferring from America, the high energy extravaganza of song and dance looks set to attract a young crowd.

The seven million dollar Broadway success story started out as a low budget British film. But the tale of out-of-work Sheffield steelworkers who strip to raise cash has gone from strength to strength. Like Naked Boys Singing at Madame JoJos and Lulu at the Almeida, the show's prime pulling power is on-stage nudity.

Other attractions include a performance by the real-life veteran showbiz performer Dora Bryan. Last seen in Seventy Girls, Seventy at the Vaudeville, she returns to the West End after a decade. Bryan's comeback could coincide with a much needed hit for theatreland.
