LA CAGE AUX FOLLES Ladies and Gentlemen, OPEN YOUR EYES!
You have arrived at LA CAGE, a fabulous nightclub in the heart of Tanjong Pagar. Here, George is your charming host and Albin, his long-time partner, headlines the worldfamous cabaret as glamorous diva Zaza.
Life is beautiful, until George’s son, Jonathan, announces his plan to marry the daughter of Mr. C.K. Tan, an ultra-conservative politician hell-bent on shutting down the colourful local nightlife.
When Jonathan brings his future in-laws home to ‘meet the parents’, the bonds of family are put to the test and the feather boas fly!
Winner of 11 Tony Awards and one of Broadway’s biggest hits, W!LD RICE’s La Cage Aux Folles was staged in 2012 to standing ovations and was awarded the Straits Times Readers’ Choice Award for ‘Production of the Year’.
This new production is directed by Glen Goei and features a star-studded company led by Ivan Heng.
With a glorious score featuring songs like I Am What I Am and The Best of Times, La Cage Aux Folles is a funny and heartwarming musical about one family’s struggle to stay together, stay fabulous and, above all else, stay true to themselves!
DON’T BLINK, DARLINGS! Book your tickets now or you’ll miss the musical extravaganza of the year!
La Cage Aux Folles is an award-winning musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman.
Based on Jean Poiret’s 1973 play of the same name (which also inspired Hollywood film The Birdcage), La Cage Aux Folles first opened on Broadway in 1983 to resounding critical acclaim.
Over three decades, the show has enjoyed considerable success on Broadway. The landmark first production received nine Tony Award nominations and won six awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
The musical has since been revived twice on Broadway – in 2004 and 2010 – and won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical both times. In total, La Cage Aux Folles has won 11 Tony Awards over its three Broadway productions.
W!LD RICE’s spectacular production of La Cage Aux Folles in 2012 was a hit with audiences and critics alike. In relocating the story to Singapore, director Glen Goei found new meaning and fresh life in this heartwarming tale of unconditional love and family values.
Come April 2017, W!LD RICE will once again re-imagine La Cage Aux Folles for a new generation of audiences. Iconic songs like I Am What I Am and The Best of Times will soar through the Victoria Theatre as this beloved musical encourages one and all to celebrate the fact that life’s not worth a damn, ’til you can say, “I am what I am!”
