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 scene is a nightclub in Berlin, as the 1920’s are drawing to a close. The Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to the show and assures them that, whatever their troubles, they will forget them at the Cabaret. His songs provide wry commentary throughout the show. On the train to Berlin we find Cliff, a young American writer seeking “raw material” for a new book. On his trip he forms an acquaintance with a fellow-traveller: Ernst Ludwig, a crook who successfully talks Cliff into smuggling a small parcel. In requital of this favour Ludwig promises to invite Bradshaw to an illustrious club, the Kit-Kat-Club. Ludwig keeps his promise and the Kit-Kat-Club lives up to its reputation. Bradshaw soon finds himself in love with a beautiful singer, Sally Bowles. She returns his feelings, but in the end their love costs them dearly.
