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."

Quotes & Highlights
- “The songs are cheerfully loopy! …like you'd find in any Saturday Night Live Skit...”, “Making the biggest splash are the set and special effects.” <em>--Backstage West</em>
- “Ingenious...hilarious…a silly, goofball-funny show that both tips its hat to and derides the campy genre of monster movies…” <em>--OC Register</em>
The producer bills this show as “So gigantic in scope, it requires two theaters to stage it! Not since Jerry Springer The Opera has the stage exploded with such mighty fury, such massive spectacle!” The theater owners say, “If you come expecting a play with substance, you won’t get your money back.”
