La Cage Aux Folles



La Cage Aux Folles opened up on Broadway on April 18th and has been getting some pretty good reviews already. This has always been one of the Mistress's favorites. Any takers for a date to escort the Mistress? La Cage aux Folles is a musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman. Based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret, it focuses on a gay couple, Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges' son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée's ultra-conservative parents to meet them. A transfer of the 2008 London revival to Broadway began previews at the Longacre Theatre on April 6, 2010 and officially opened on April 18, 2010. Johnson and Page direct and choreograph. Kelsey Grammer stars as Georges, marking his debut in a Broadway musical. The show received many positive and rave reviews, many praising the scaled-down nature of the production, as well as the performances of newcomers Douglas Hodge and Kelsey Grammer as Albin and Georges. The Cagelles: Nick Adams, Nicholas Cunningham, Sean Patrick Doyle, Yurel Echezarreta, Logan Keslar and Terry Lavell. Nick Adams y'all! All the more reason to see this wonderful play! He is just sexy as all hell, And how will they get all that muscle into drag!

  1. It is supposed to be a really great production, & I love the score...but why would the rightwinger Kelsey Grammer (who got great reviews & a Tony Nom) choose this vehicle? & he wants to do the other role later in the run!

    I would love to see this show with you!

  3. I think I have seen three versions of the play and all of them have been just as good. I would love to see how Kelsey Grammer does in this part.As for your cutie, He is also going to play the Guy Pierce part in the Americian version Prisilla Queen of the Desert. Hope it as good as the English one!
