For a naughty and nice alternative this Holiday Season, the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre Company is presenting the fabulous Broadway hit musical La Cage aux Folles, on stage at the Vancouver Playhouse through to December 24, 2011.
I attended this hilarious musical production recently that saw this wonderful cast entertain the audience with each musical number. Some of the woman are played by men in drag and its all cleverly costumed.
This tuneful and touching tale is one family’s struggle to stay together and above all else, stay true to themselves! Georges owns a glitzy nightclub in lovely St. Tropez and his partner, Albin, is the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When George’s son brings his fiancée’s conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test. The glorious score of hummable melodies by Jerry Herman and the book by Harvey Fierstein will have audiences in stitches every night (and matinees too!).
