La Cage Aux Folles, or The Bird Cage, is the brilliant theater musical written by Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman. La Cage Aux Folles is based on the original French play with the same name written in 1973 by Jean Poiret. It was another ten years before La Cage Aux Folles made it to Broadway for this 1983 debut! The original Broadway production received nine Tony nominations and six Tony wins. Some of the categories best noted for La Cage Aux Folles are Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. The play took a hiatus for many years before being revived on Broadway in 2004. The 2004 Broadway revival of La Cage Aux Folles won a Tony Award for Best Revival. In 2008 La Cage Aux Folles won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. In 2010 La Cage Aux Folles was nominated for eleven Tony Awards and won again the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, making La Cage Aux Folles the only musical to win Best Revival more than once!
In the fall of 2011 La Cage Aux Folles embarked on another National Tour. This exciting and colorful play is centered on a gay couple named Georges and his fun-loving “wife” Albin. Georges is the esteemed owner of the prominent drag nightclub in St. Tropez called La Cage Aux Folles, or The Bird Cage. Georges and Albin live in the apartment above La Cage Aux Folles along with their black maid Jacob. Albin is the star performer of La Cage Aux Folles and uses the alias Zaza. La Cage Aux Folles depicts the happy couple living in perfect harmony until one day Georges receives a request from his son Jean-Michel. Jean Michel is engaged to the daughter of the head of the “Tradition, Family, and Morality Party” that is in fact on a mission to close down all drag clubs in St. Tropez. This awkward set-up gets even worse when Jean-Michel tells his father that he has told his fiancée that Georges is in fact a retired diplomat.
La Cage Aux Folles then delivers a hysterical comedy of errors as Georges, Albin, the maid, and Jean Michel all strain to maintain the lie and hide the drag queen lifestyle from Jean Michel’s fiancée’s parents!
