For the newest installment of our annual "workers' power play series," we're thrilled to present the gleefully raunchy blue collar Broadway musical that dares to ask just how far workers have to go survive the unemployment line.
This drama desk award-winning adaptation of the 1997 British film moves the action right here to Buffalo, NY as six laid off steel workers decide the only answer to their financial woes is to start their own dance act as male strippers. The struggle to put the Chippendale bow tie around the blue collar makes for an outrageous journey rich with bawdy humor, powerhouse pop-rock music, and a kick-ass tribute to the courage to step outside the rules and become what you never thought you could be.
By Terrence McNally, directed by Susan Forbes* and stars Anthony Alcocer, Jeffrey Coyle*, Thomas LaChiusa+*, Pamela Rose Mangus, Victor Morales, Jamie Nablo, Connor Graham*, Alejandro Perez, Alfonzo Tyson, Tim Goehrig, Smirna Mercedes-Perez, Diane McNamara*, Alley Griffin, Katherine Parker, Benjamin Caldwell, & Jaime Goldfuss. featuring musical direction by Cindy Bottoms-Noller with choreography by Nancy Hughes, and visual art by Buffalo steel plant veteran & renowned local artist George Grace.
