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."

This show was fantastic! It followed the movie pretty well and there were more musical numbers than the movie which made sense because it was a musical! The music fit the flow of it really well though and it had quite a few funny moments. The actors were really great and you could tell that they were enjoying themselves as well. The theater was small which worked really well because there was not a bad seat in the house!

The Wedding SInger: The Musical is based on the 1998 Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore film, takes us back to 1985, where rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.
With a brand new score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Curtis Jerome is back for a third time as director and choreographer. His past Maverick productions include the sold out runs of Rent and Reefer Madness. Jerome is a master of big ensemble musicals and couldn’t resist the challenge of tackling the biggest costume musical ever done at the Maverick, with more than 150 costumes on only 19 actors.
