Night Blue Theater Presents: "La Cage Aux Folles"

Shawn Quinlan: Choreographer
Paul Packer: Director
David E. Walters: Assistant Director/Producer
Lesley Hoerner: Vocal Director

Based on a French film by Jean Poiret by the same name (that was also the inspiration for the 1996 hit film "The Birdcage"), La Cage aux Folles is a boisterous and uplifting celebration of family values. The musical tells the story of Albin and Georges, two middle-aged partners who run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez. Their outrageously resplendent peace turns to mayhem when their son announces that he is getting married--to the daughter of a local morals crusader!

Featuring a hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein and a score by composing legend Jerry Herman ("Hello, Dolly", "Mack and Mable", and "Dear World) the original Broadway production of La Cage aux Folles won six Tony Awards including Best Musical and ran for over four years in the mid-1980s.
