About the show

‘La Cage aux Folles’, the story of a gay couple who run a drag nightclub, is the only show that has been won The Tony Award for each of its Broadway productions in 1983, 2004, and 2010. More…

‘La Cage’ tells the story of Georges, the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Georges' son brings his fiancée's conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, they attempt to pretend to be straight for one night.
