Synopsis
Based on a French film by Jean Poiret, La Cage Aux Folles is a fabulous, flamboyant musical comedy about love, life – and family values in a decidedly unconventional family.

Georges and Albin have a happy if stormy life together, running a drag club where Albin stars as Za Za, drag queen extraordinaire. But when Georges’ son Jean-Michel announces his engagement to Anne, the daughter of a notoriously narrow-minded politician, their efforts to “play it straight” for a meeting with the in-laws result in high insanity.

This multi-Tony award winning musical was written by Jerry Herman, who also wrote Mack and Mabel, Hello Dolly & Mame and was later made into the film “The Birdcage” starring Robin Williams.
