Photo Coverage: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES Opens in LA - Christopher Sieber, George Hamilton & More
Broadway/L.A. has brought the acclaimed production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, winner of three 2010 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, to the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood for a limited 2 week engagement through July 22, 2012. Starring as Georges is film and television star George Hamilton, and two-time Tony Award nominee and Broadway veteran Christopher Sieber makes his road debut in the role of Albin. The production opened on Tuesday, July 10 to great fanfare and BroadwayWorld brings you a look at the starry opening red carpet below.
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES tells the story of Georges (George Hamilton) the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner Albin (Christopher Sieber), who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Georges' son brings his fiancée's conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly! LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is a tuneful and touching tale of one family's struggle to stay together... stay fabulous... and above all else, stay true to themselves.
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES recently made Tony Awards history as the first show to ever win the Tony Award three times for best production. The classic musical comedy by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein originally won six Tony Awards in 1984, including Best Musical. A Broadway revival won two 2005 Tony Awards including the Best Revival of a Musical prize. The new, freshly reconceived LA CAGE won three 2010 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Director of a Musical (Terry Johnson).
