Reviews in for 'The Full Monty'
The Full Monty, which stars Anthony Lewis as Lomper and which is currently touring the UK, has received fantastic reviews across the board.
The press on Anthony Lewis and The Full Monty:
- “…the unsuspected star of the show has to be Lewis. His Lomper is played as a very convincing possibly borderline autistic man, not offensively, simply as a quirk, and he elicits laughter and sympathy with every line he utters. His breakthrough scene discovering his homosexuality with Fountain is particularly touching, with just the right mix of awkwardness and attraction.” 4.5 stars, Ruth Jepson, Reviews Hub
- “Anthony Lewis was great as Lomper. He has clearly perfected the goofy, shoulder slumped look and voice for the role.” 4.5 stars, Jenny Bray, What’s Good To Do
- “A show full of laughs and tears. A great night out barely covers it.” Jamie Gaskin, Reviews Hub
- “sends the audience home wearing the biggest of grins” 4 stars, Iain Sykes, Reviews Hub
- “Wonderfully warm and witty” 4 stars, Dominic Corr, Reviews Hub
- “Anthony Lewis as suicidal and depressed Lomper shows great sensitivity” Phil Lowe, East Midlands Theatre
