How far would you go to provide for the people you love?
Based on the Oscar®-nominated film of the same name, this show has a warm heart at the center of all the fun. And, it is a blast! A group of unemployed steelworkers need to make some quick cash any way they can. They overcome fear, self-consciousness, anxiety and feelings of worthlessness to become the most unlikely group of exotic dancers. Often, musicals tend to depict a story and characters that are larger than life in surreal situations. But, this show is about “us”—real people in real situations facing real issues forced to decide on the best solutions for them. It’s a beautiful story that challenges the heart. A show that “strips” down all defenses and demonstrates that family is first.
