The only possible reason to stage a piece of third-rate bilge like The Full Monty these days is to give a few fun performers the chance to barrel through its handful of competent-enough set pieces while shaking down an audience for a little money to fund the rest of your season. With that in mind, why should anyone bother complaining too much about Terrence McNally’s book (appallingly lazy) or Mark and Susan Rhea’s direction (somehow limp and unrestrained at once)? Better to focus, instead, on what pleasures are available: the voices of the Keegan Theatre ensemble, which blend nicely; a few handsome solo and duet turns from solid singers like John Loughney and Priscilla Cuellar and Michael Innocenti, in numbers that remind you that composer David Yazbeck does in fact know how to craft a melody.
