La Cage Aux Folles
Book by Harvey Fierstein
Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Based on the book by Jean Poiret
Directed by Melora Kordos

After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse, get a bit of both when Georges\\\\\\\' son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Futher complicating the situation is the \"family business\" - Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez where Albin is the star performer \"Zaza.\" Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as \"normal\" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be, but Albin has other plans that provide hilarious results!
