La Cage Aux Folles in LA

The critically acclaimed production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, winner of three 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical will play the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood for a limited 2 week engagement July 10 - 22, 2012. Starring as Georges will be film and television star George Hamilton and two-time Tony Award nominee and Broadway veteran Christopher Sieber will make his road debut in the role of Albin.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES tells the story of Georges (George Hamilton) the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner Albin (Christopher Sieber), who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Georges' son brings his fiancee's conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly! LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is a tuneful and touching tale of one family's struggle to stay together... stay fabulous... and above all else, stay true to themselves!
