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!
