NEW PRODUCTION OF THE WEST END AND
BROADWAY AWARD WINNING MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA!!
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES
MUSIC & LYRICS BY JERRY HERMAN BOOK BY HARVEY FIERSTEIN DESIGNED BY GARY McCANN
STARRING JOHN PARTRIDGE & ADRIAN ZMED
Georges and the dazzling drag artiste Albin, star of la Cage aux Folles, live an idyllic existence in the heart of St Tropez. But behind the curtains of this sparkling extravaganza, all may be about to change.
Georges’ son Jean-Michel announces his engagement to the daughter of a notorious right-wing politician determined to close down the local colourful night-life. Drama and hilarity ensue when a meeting of the parents forces them to cover up their vibrant lifestyle. Will Albin be able to play the role of his life to ensure that Jean-Michel can marry his love?
Bill Kenwright presents a spectacular new version of the much loved musical with West End star JOHN PARTRIDGE as Albin and Broadway leading man ADRIAN ZMED as Georges. John’s extensive theatre credits boast the West End productions of A Chorus Line at the London Palladium, Cats, Starlight Express and Chicago, but perhaps he is best known for playing the loveable Christian in BBC’s EastEnders and as a judge on TV’s Over The Rainbow. Adrian’s Broadway credits include Blood Brothers, Grease and Falsettos and on television he is best loved as Officer Vince Romano in the hit TV show T.J. Hooker and on the big screen as Johnny in Grease 2.
The show-stopping score includes The Best of Times, Song on the Sand and I Am What I Am.
