Photo Flash: Theatre By The Sea's LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, Now Playing Through 9/1
Theatre By The Sea (TBTS) will conclude the blockbuster 2013 season with a glamorous production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, a 'modern family' musical. This sparkling all new production will be on stage through Sunday, September 1, 2013. Check out a first look below!
"It has been a very exciting season at Theatre By The Sea and we are anxious to dazzle audiences with our sparkling all new production of La Cage Aux Folles," said TBTS owner and producer Bill Hanney. "Our costume designer, Marcia Zammarelli, is designing a spectacular brand new costume package for this production. The beautiful original designs will also be seen at North Shore Music Theatre, in Beverly, MA, next month, and will be available for rental to other theatres in the future."
Winner of multiple Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, and twice named Best Revival, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES tells the story of Georges, the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner, Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse, Zaza. When Georges' son brings home his fiancee's conservative parents to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test! 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! With a glorious score of hummable melodies, written by Jerry Herman of Hello, Dolly!, Mame and Mack & Mabel fame, and a hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is an indisputable musical comedy classic!
