La Cage aux Folles - 2004 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Based on a French film by Jean Poiret by the same name, as well as the inspiration for the 1996 hit film The Birdcage, La Cage aux Folles is a boisterous and uplifting celebration of family values. The musical tells the story of Albin and Georges, two middle-aged partners who run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez. Their outrageously resplendent peace turns to mayhem when their son announces that he is getting married -- to the daughter of a local morals crusader! The original Broadway production received six Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Running Time:

Two hours and 30 minutes with one intermission

Marquis Theatre (Broadway)
