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."

<p>Hamlet is a philosophical study of life and death, laced with some of the most recognized of Shakespeare's soliloquies including, Hamlet's "To be or not to be..." Home for his father's funeral, Hamlet learns that his father's brother, Claudius, has taken over the kingship of Denmark by marrying the queen, his mother. When his late father's ghost appears before him to tell how Claudius murdered him in cold blood, Hamlet develops a severe melancholy and sets out to avenge his father's death. Hamlet requests that a troupe of players performs a play representing the crime of his uncle, whose violent reaction on seeing the play reveals his guilty conscience-exactly what Hamlet intended.</p>
