Overview Reviews

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."

Review by Steven Suskin from Variety

"Attending a performance of this La Cage is a bit like spending an afternoon with an overactive but thoroughly charming child. They all seem to be having a swell time, as will you."

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

"The cast offers all the flourishes you'd expect from a show rooted in drag performance. The six Cagelles are an impressively lithe and acrobatic ensemble. By the end of this well-paced production, it's hard not to concur with the refrain of Albin's second-act number: The best of times is now."

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

"***** The musical revival of the year. I would never have thought that we needed another revival of this musical so soon after the last one’s flames flickered out. Yet somehow this familiar show blows the roof off the Longacre Theatre, and makes a case for La Cage as a classic of American musical comedy. Tuneful, touching, tacky and bedazzling, La Cage aux Folles is what it is. And what it is is a sensation."
