Do The Full Monty

THE FULL MONTY Broadway musical runs in Cape Town at the Artscape Opera House from July 26th – August.
Seeing how much their wives enjoy watching male strippers during their "Girls' Night Out," unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York, come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness, feelings of worthlessness and anxieties – over everything from being overweight to child custody, bigotry to being gay – they come to discover that not only are they stronger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their respective problems and overcome them. Truth be told, through creative directing and staging, the final impact of "The Full Monty" can be achieved without ever losing your jockey shorts, however the show is not called the "The Half Monty"...!

Seen in Cape Town

To fully appreciate a destination in one's own country, there is no better way than to be a tourist yourself and savour the sights, sounds and tastes. Here we are in Cape Town in the photos (from top) Llewellyn on Clifton Beach 3 - the gay beach, myself (Dave) outside Parliament with a backdrop of Table Mountain, Llewellyn posing outside the Houses of Parliament, and lastly views of Sandy Bay, Cape Town's famous nudist beach - the far end, seen from the rock outcrop in the penultimate photo, being the gay section. Enjoy!!
