Last night we visited the New Theatre in Oxford to the stage version of the classic film The Full Monty.
I found Oxford a very easy place to park in. I parked in the city centre where parking was only £2.50 after half 6. There is also park and ride situated in different places around the city. It is £2 to park for 12 hours and £2.70 return on the bus which stops very close to the theatre. All the parking that I saw was at the side of the road.
The theatre had a warm welcoming feeling. All the staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming, especially Stephanie who even remembered my name.
The Full Monty is a British comedy set in Sheffield. It’s about a group of men who worked in a steel works that shut down and therefore they found themselves out of work and on the dole. One of them needs to make some money to carry on seeing his son and comes up with the idea of doing the Full Monty after seeing women’s reactions to some Chippendales.
The show itself was very good. It told the whole story of the film version of The Full Monty including the Job Centre scene where they practice their moves to Hot Stuff. All of the cast played their parts very well.
At the end of the show they chucked their hats like they do in the film. The show is suitable for all adults. It was a mixed audience with plenty of men in it. I would highly recommend this show as it was a laugh from start to finish.
I would definitely go and see the show again. A hilarious show.
Tickets cost from £15.40 to £35.40 (plus £4 transaction fee).
