The critically acclaimed, Olivier Award-winning production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is pleased to announce a student rush ticket policy.

Each morning when the box office opens, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES will have a limited number of select seating student rush tickets for purchase for that day’s matinee or evening performance, as applicable. Tickets are $36.50, subject to availability and are available on a first come, first served basis.  There is a limit of two tickets per patron.  Cash or credit card will be accepted and a valid student ID is required.

The tickets will be available at the Longacre Theatre box office only.  For performances Tuesday through Saturday, the box office opens at 10:00 AM. For Sunday performances, the box office opens at 12:00 PM.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES begins performances on Tuesday, April 6 at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street).  Opening night is Sunday, April 18.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES stars five-time Emmy Award-winner Kelsey Grammer as Georges and Olivier Award-winner Douglas Hodge as Albin, and also stars Fred Applegate as Edouard Dindon/M. Renaud; Tony nominee Veanne Cox as Mme. Dindon/Mme. Renaud; Chris Hoch as Francis; Elena Shaddow as Anne; A.J. Shively as Jean-Michel; with two-time Tony nominee Christine Andreas as Jacqueline; Tony-nominee Robin de Jesús (In the Heights) as Jacob; with Heather Lindell as Colette; Bill Nolte as Tabarro and David Nathan Perlow as Etienne.

Also starring as the notorious and dangerous Cagelles will be Nick Adams as Angelique, Sean A. Carmon as Phaedra, Nicholas Cunningham as Hanna, Sean Patrick Doyle as Chantal, Logan Keslar as Bitelle and Terry Lavell as Mercedes.   The production also features Christophe Caballero, Todd Lattimore, Dale Hensley, Caitlin Mundth and Cheryl Stern.

Douglas Hodge and Nicholas Cunningham are appearing with the permission of Actors’ Equity Association. The producers gratefully acknowledge Actors’ Equity Association for its assistance to this production.

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.
