"The Full Monty" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by the Chicago Sun-Times!
"... the terrific actors, expertly directed by John D. Glover, have clearly channeled whatever inhibitions they might have in ways that are alternately hilarious, poignant and real."
"...what makes it all work is pure heart."
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
FOURS STARS for "The Full Monty" from the Chicago Reader!
"Kokandy Productions delivers a first-rate staging of this very funny musical."
"...a shrewd mix of sentiment, salty comedy, and some surprisingly sharp commentary on gender roles, body image, and the emotional effects of long-term unemployment. (If anything, the show has more resonance now than when it premiered in 2000.)"
- Albert Williams, Chicago Reader
"A musical that offers a touching, funny story that average theatergoers can relate to, and a score that sends them out of the theatre humming and smiling, is just what we need these days. "
"...a real winner!"
- Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
"...this production’s musical numbers kick and scream (in a very good way)"
"...[a] sexy, sizzling musical'
- Kevin Greene, Newcity
