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 stranger as a group, but that the strength they find in each other gives them the individual courage to face their demons and overcome them."It's a blockbuster! David Yazbek's music and lyrics work like a charm" – New York Post."Memory-grabbing melodies, outlandish lyrics…" – The New York Times
