As you may or may not know, the Full Monty is a hot commodity. People love it. Perhaps its the toe-tapping musical numbers, or perhaps its the story of a bunch of guys working through their fears, loss of identity and feelings of worthlessness to discover their inner strength and find the courage to face their hardships that people love. Or maybe its just the awkward stripping. Whatever the case may be, we have had to prepare ourselves for the large crowds we expect. Below is a letter that we’ve sent to all of our subscribers about potential parking issues. If you haven’t gotten it, but are coming to see the show, give it a read.

Thank you for your ticket purchase to The Full Monty at the Bonstelle Theatre. If you’ve never attended a production at the Bonstelle before, it is located only a few blocks away from the Hilberry, at 3424 Woodward Avenue. Due to the show’s popularity the box office is expecting to sell out for several performances.
In order to ensure you have an enjoyable experience, please allow plenty of time to park before show time and if possible, carpool with friends. Parking at the Red Cross lot, adjacent to the theatre, will fill quickly, but there is additional parking available in the Wayne State University Parking Structure #7. The structure is located behind the Ellington lofts at the corner of Woodward and Mack, only one block away from the Bonstelle. Please do not use the retail spaces outside of the Starbucks, T-Mobile, FedEx and Bank of America. The cost at the structure is $6 cash or credit paid upon exit. There will be staff and WSU police on site to assist you.
Your satisfaction and patronage is our number one priority. Please let us know if you have any questions by calling (313) 577-5126.
Update: The map below shows the approaches from North and South on Woodward.
