La Cage aux Folles

In the organizer's words:
A cry of liberation resounds from Broadway to London and Berlin in 1983 and heralds the triumphant advance of a musical that demands the right to a colorful life beyond the petty bourgeoisie.Georges runs the nightclub La Cage aux Folles. The absolute star is his partner, the drag queen Zaza, alias Albin. Then Jean-Michel, Georges' son from a previous relationship, shows up: He wants to marry Anne, daughter of ultra-conservative family, and asks Georges, to Albin's greatest disappointment, to the first meeting with the family alone. Albin is deeply offended. But then he does not let himself be deprived of the joint dinner in Jacqueline's restaurant ...Jerry Herman created a classic of the musical genre with an empowerment anthem that not only gave the queer scene the strength to fight for more openness and justice. Staged by Barrie Kosky, the play becomes an ever-valid plea for the courage to stand by oneself and each other! This content has been machine translated.
