Longacre Theatre

Georges is the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on the French Riviera. Partnered romantically with his high-strung star performer, Albin (who goes by the stage name Zaza), the pair live a charmed life—until Georges’ son, Jean-Michel, turns up engaged to the daughter of a conservative right-wing politician who’s coming to dinner.

Story

La Cage aux Folles centers on a St. Tropez drag-show nightclub owned by Georges and headlined by his longtime love Albin. The couple raised Georges’ son (the product of a youthful one-night stand) together, but when young Jean-Michel gets engaged to the daughter of a right-wing politician determined to crack down on gay nightlife, Georges feels compelled to pretend to have a "normal" family, with Albin taking on the masculine persona of "Uncle Al." Will Jean-Michel’s future in-laws be fooled?

Critics' Reviews

""The ladies of the chorus from La Cage aux Folles have never looked more appealing than they do in [this] warm, winning production. Terry Johnson's revival of Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein's musical...delivers the unexpected lesson that in theater, shabby can be not just chic but redemptive.""

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

""Why bring back La Cage aux Folles only five years after its first Broadway revival? The producers of this new edition, which premiered at London's Menier Chocolate Factory in 2007, have a convincing answer: It's funny, heartwarming and terrific.""
