STARRING

George Hamilton and Christopher Sieber

Coming to Fort Lauderdale June 12 for TWO Weeks Only!

The critically acclaimed production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES starring George Hamilton and Christopher Sieber, arrives in Fort Lauderdale at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts June 12 – 24, 2012.

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).

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!

George Hamilton with his exceedingly handsome looks and charming personality is noted for his dashing, sporting, jet-setter image and perpetually bronzed skin tones in commercials, dramatic and comedic film roles and reality shows. He is best known for his MGM films in the 1960s' Where the Boys Are, Your Cheatin' Heart and Evel Knievel.  He was nominated for a Golden Globe as the campy neck-biter in the Dracula spoof Love at First Bite (1979), which he executive-produced, and continued on the parody road successfully with Zorro, the Gay Blade (1981).  Mr. Hamilton has been seen in a string of fun commercials, hosting beauty pageants and making breezy gag appearances. He has broken through the "reality show" ranks by hosting "The Family" (2003) and participating in the second season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" (2005/I).
