Kelsey Grammer in the Farcical La Cage aux Folles
Features: A fresh and hilarious revival of the cherished 1983 musical, La Cage aux Folles features the comedic talents of Kelsey Grammer (Cheers, Frasier) and Douglas Hodge (Robin Hood, Vanity Fair). This funny Broadway musical is directed by Terry Johnson and features music by Jerry Herman and book by Harvey Fierstein.
Why We Go: With its memorable songs and delightful humor, La Cage Broadway has endeared itself to countless theater fans. This particular production is notable for its performances by Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge, who have perfect comedic timing and chemistry.
- Awards: La Cage aux Folles won six Tony Awards in 1984, the year after its Broadway debut. Each of its Broadway revivals (one in 2004 and one in 2010) won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, making it the only musical to have won that award twice. It is also the only twice-revived musical to have won the Best Musical award for every staged production.
- Story: Perhaps more than anything else, it is the superb writing of Harvey Fierstein that has endeared the musical to theatergoers and critics alike. Using his natural comedic talents, Fierstein ensures that none of the humor of the original French play is lost in translation. Fittingly, Fierstein won the Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical in 1984.
- Longacre Theatre: Like many small venues, the Longacre Theatre promises a unique and intimate theatrical experience. Its small size ensures that every member of the audience will see the action and feel the energy on-stage. Those looking for a particularly memorable experience may take advantage of exclusive cabaret seating.
Inside Knowledge: La Cage Broadway was adapted into the feature-length film The Birdcage in 1996. The film adaptation, which stars Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, is the highest-grossing North American LGBT-related film of all time.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Arrive Early: Doors at the Longacre Theatre open 30 minutes before show time. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before the show begins.
- Do Snatch Cabaret Seating: There's no better way to enjoy La Cage aux Folles than from one of the four exclusive tables right at the edge of the stage. This unforgettable and intimate Broadway experience is well worth the price.
