Why See La Cage Aux Folles?
we are what we are
Outrageously funny, dynamic and joyful, "La Cage" remains one of the most socially relevant musicals since premiering on Broadway in 1983 and its constant revivals ensure that new generations of fans fall in love with it time and time again.
Think of a cross between "Look Who's Coming To Dinner" and "Meet The Parents", with a little of "Mrs Doubtfire" thrown in. In fact, those three films owe much to their success to this story. Georges and Albin are two happily co-habiting men who run a successful cabaret nightclub in the exclusive St Tropez, living with their "maid" Jacob.
One day Georges' son Jean-Michel appears, to tell his parents that he is getting married. The only problem is that this fiancee's parents are uber conservative politicians - strictly opposed to drag clubs and homosexuality. Terrified at the prospect of Anne's parents discovering his unusual background, Jean-Michel tries to strongarm the flamboyant Albin (who has acted as mother all these years) into appearing as an uncle instead.
The charade continues with an upset Albin and concerned Georges, until an unfortunate sing along in a restaurant with Anne's family lead them to discover the truth about Jean Michel's family. Can Albin forgive Jean-Michel for being ashamed of him, and will he be able to hold on to Anne? Welcome to La Cage - where nothing is as it seems.
