La Cage aux Folles

Theater Musical Musiktheater
In the organizer's words:

The fast-paced comedy staged as a sensitive plea.

Albin and Georges are a charming pair of lovers who run a nightclub together in St. Tropez. Albin is the travesty star who enchants and bewilders the audience night after night as Zaza, and Georges is the prudent manager who stoically endures the whims and bad moods of the various theatrical divas and keeps the place running. Nothing could shake the happiness if one day Jean-Michel, son of Georges would not come home (misstep from young years) and announce his wedding plans. With a girl, of all people, and with the daughter of an arch-conservative provincial politician who would like to "wipe out" all the nightclubs in St. Tropez. As if that were not enough, the conservative father-in-law-to-be has also announced himself for the next day. The apartment must be rearranged, the fumbling banished to the closets, ... finally, both fathers are ready. The only thing missing is a mother. But what's the point of being a travesty star, after all?

Markus Beisel and Andrea Matthias Pagani in the leading roles make the Broadway success play a very special treat at the Capitol. Marcos Padotzke makes the music sound light coffee house style with a wonderful orchestra. Doris Marlis' debauched choreography makes you forget who is man or woman here. And Georg Veit stages the fast-paced comedy as a sensitive plea to understand our differences as enrichment. We are firmly convinced that the "cage full of fools" is not as far away as many think.
