LA CAGE AUX FOLLES
begins previews on Tuesday, April 6 and opens on Sunday, April 18 at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street).   The production is now on sale through Telecharge.com at 212-239-6200, at www.telecharge.com/lacage   and at the Longacre Theatre box office (220 West 48th Street).  

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES
features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Harvey Fierstein, based on the play by Jean Poiret.  This freshly reconceived production is choreographed by Lynne Page and directed by Terry Johnson.

Georges (Kelsey Grammer) is the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on the French Riviera. Partnered romantically with his high-strung star performer, Albin (Douglas Hodge), the pair live a charmed life—until Georges’ son announces his engagement to the daughter of a conservative right-wing politician who’s coming to dinner.
 
The original production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES was one of Broadway’s biggest hits of the 1980s.  It opened August 21, 1983 at the Palace Theatre, where it played for over four years and 1,761 performances.  The show won six Tony Awards in 1984, including Best Musical, Best Score (Jerry Herman) and Best Book (Harvey Fierstein).       

The new production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES played from November 23, 2007 to March 8, 2008 at the Menier Chocolate Factory, earning across the board raves and moving to the West End’s Playhouse Theatre on October 30, 2008, where it was nominated for seven 2009 Olivier Awards, winning for Best Musical Revival and Best Actor in a Musical for Douglas Hodge and won the 2009 Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best Musical.  
 
“A glorious night of showbiz razzle dazzle!” exclaimed Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph.  “At last a musical to sweep away those credit-crunch blues. This joyous show deserves every hurrah and standing ovation it receives.”  “Suddenly, the West End sparkles,” cheered Sam Marlowe, The Times.  “Sew on a sequin, slip into some heels and go.”  
 
The production features set design by Tim Shortall, costume design by Matthew Wright, lighting design by Nick Richings, sound design by Jonathan Deans and wig and makeup design by Richard Mawbey.   Musical supervision, orchestrations and dance arrangements are by Jason Carr.  Musical director is Todd Ellison.
