Tony Award®-Winning Musical Comedy

La Cage aux Folles

by Jerry Herman & Harvey Fierstein; based on the play by Jean Poiret

May 31 – July 10, 2016


With the exception of scattered single seats and a few limited view seats, La Cage aux Folles is sold out. Please check back often as people do release their seats for sale.

The beloved gender-bending musical comedy and winner of six Tony Awards® including Best Musical closes out the Signature season starring Bobby Smith.

The twenty year relationship between Georges, a club-owner, and Albin, the head drag performer, faces a test when their son announces his engagement to the daughter of ultra-conservative political parents. To please their son, Georges and Albin agree to hide their lifestyle and play it straight for a dinner with the potential in-laws. However, Albin’s different definition of “normal” threatens to upend the entire supper with hilarious results.

With an iconic score by Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!; Mame) featuring “I Am What I Am” and “The Best of Times” and hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein (Newsies, Kinky Boots), La Cage Aux Folles is a fabulously fun musical about family, identity and loving who you are.
