Evans is currently represented on the touring road by his Sheffield production of a new stage adaptation of The Full Monty that has already been announced to transfer to the West End's Noel Coward Theatre next February.

The production will be designed by Peter McKintosh, with choreography by Alistair David, musical direction by Jonathan Gill, lighting design by Howard Harrison and sound design by Simon Baker. The orchestral arrangements are by William David Brohn, and the production is licensed by Cameron Mackintosh and the Southbook Group.
