A boisterous and uplifting portrait of love in a nontraditional family, La Cage aux Folles has been one of Broadway's biggest hits. Georges and Albin, a gay couple who run and star in a popular drag show, find their domestic peace shattered when their son brings his prospective in-laws home to meet the folks. The would-be father-in-law happens to be the head of a conservative party that wants to shut down the drag show. The lively and glittering spectacle that ensues celebrates family values, unconditional love and, above all, the need to be proud of who we are. The show, which was adapted into the popular movie The Birdcage starring Robin Williams, features gorgeous costumes, fabulous dance numbers and a wonderful Jerry Herman score, including "The Best of Times" and "I Am What I Am."

The first half of the show was presented in a Burlesque style and was fairly well done.
The second half of the show was mostly average level dance productions not Burlesque.
The best part of the whole production was the comedy and comedic antics of the two secret service agents who performed at the beginning and between stage production numbers.
Overall, my wife and I were disappointed with the value we received.
Guests are asked to play their part by dressing in cocktail attire. Tuxed-up British agents will serve drinks to the guests and supply the evening’s comic relief with antidotes from the spy world.
Created by Brian Newell, one the founders of the Maverick and the creator of the popular Elvis musical_ The King_, he has also produced and directed many of the Maverick’s sold out productions such as The Rocky Horror Show, Night of the Living Dead, and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
