Fun-filled evening with lots of laughs. The female commedienne at the beginning of the show was a hoot!!!

More Information


La Cage aux Folles centers on a St. Tropez drag-show nightclub owned by Georges and headlined by his longtime love, Albin. The couple raised Georges’ son (the product of a youthful one-night stand) together, but when young Jean-Michel gets engaged to the daughter of a right-wing politician determined to crack down on gay nightlife, Georges feels compelled to pretend to have a “normal” family, with Albin taking on the masculine persona of “Uncle Al.” Will Jean-Michel’s future in-laws be fooled?

This beloved 1983 musical hit is glitzy, warm and funny. The show’s "Cagelles” (men in drag) perform lively musical numbers to Jerry Herman’s Tony-winning score, and Harvey Fierstein’s book is as hilarious as ever. But the heart of the show is its touching portrayal of Georges and Albin’s enduring love. As the song says, “The Best of Times” is always now to see La Cage aux Folles.

Is La Cage aux Folles Appropriate for Kids?

If you don’t mind taking your kids to a nightclub featuring bawdy drag queens and comfortable-in-their-skin gay men (who kiss!), absolutely! School-age kids will embrace La Cage’s slapstick humor (including the comic antics of Albin’s “maid” Jacob) and will identify with Jean-Michel’s plight in feeling pulled between a desire to impress his girlfriend and loyalty to his sometimes embarrassing parents. The family at the center of the show may be unconventional, but their devotion to one another makes a strong statement about family values.
