The staging by Jasmine Swan has an industrial feel, depicting the Sheffield landscape of the time. The large metal structure serves well to take us to many places throughout the show and is moved around by the cast with its own choreography, whilst many classic pop tunes blast out, including M People’s ‘One Night In Heaven’ and Chumbawamba’s ‘Tubthumping’.
It’s safe to say that if you’ve seen the film, then you are very familiar with the closing scene, the big performance of ‘The Full Monty’. It feels as though there is an air of tension throughout the evening, which I may add is 80% female, until we reach this big moment. The audience is encouraged to cheer along to this routine, which never fails to bring the house down, and its clear that the cast are loving the adoration throughout.
