La Cage Aux Folles description

Original stars Douglas Hodge and Denis Lawson return for 5 weeks only.


Douglas Hodge won this year's Olivier Award for his unforgettable performance as the nightclub legend Zaza, while Denis Lawson was nominated for his performance as Georges, Zaza's long-term partner. The idyllic existence of Georges and Albin is threatened when Georges' son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing politician, who wants to close down the local colourful nightlife! With a visit from the prospective in-laws imminent, they all decide to take drastic action to hide their lifestyle... but can they keep it up?


La Cage aux Folles is a timeless and deliciously funny tale of family values, unconditional love, and above all, the need to celebrate who we are. Jerry Herman's (Hello, Dolly!, Mack and Mabel and Mame) fabulous score includes 'I Am What I Am', 'The Best of Times' and 'Song on the Sand'.
