Synopsis: Georges is the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on the French Riviera. Partnered romantically with his high-strung star performer, Albin (who goes by the stage name Zaza), the pair live a charmed life—until Georges’ son, Jean-Michel, turns up engaged to the daughter of a conservative right-wing politician who’s coming to dinner.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES ORIGINAL REVIEW:

"Their plumage is wilting, their wigs are askew, and their bustiers keep slipping south to reveal unmistakably masculine chests. Yet the ladies of the chorus from “La Cage aux Folles” have never looked more appealing than they do in the warm, winning production that opened Sunday night at the Longacre Theater"

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"The leading lady’s costumes have had to be sized up, but there was never any question of their not fitting. After all, it’s Harvey Fierstein who has stepped into the role (and corset, plumes and pumps) of Zaza, the main attraction of the nightclub and the musical named “La Cage aux Folles.”"

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Well, it's about time Broadway turned its attention to the needs of that neglected demographical stereotype, the Tired Businessman. Really, when was the last time that a big show opened with enough cheesecake and hummable, vaguely familiar melodies to penetrate the smog of Maker's Mark and statistics that so many men of Manhattan take with them to the theater?"

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Is there a more appealing, entertaining argument for motherhood than "La Cage aux Folles"? Especially when mother is a quixotic, neurotic but undeniably goodhearted drag queen played by Douglas Hodge, who, by the way, is giving the most exuberant musical-comedy performance of the season."

NEW YORK POST REVIEW:

"The last Broadway revival of "La Cage aux Folles" was a little more than five years ago, so it's not as if anybody was clamoring for another go-round, no matter how beloved Jerry Herman's score is. "

VARIETY REVIEW:

"Why bring back "La Cage aux Folles" -- a major hit musical of the 1983-84 Broadway season, but certainly not a classic like "Gypsy" or "Fiddler on the Roof" -- only five years after its first Broadway revival? Especially when that 2004-05 stint proved a tired and unnecessary affair, suggesting that the original production (with its six Tony Awards) was stronger than the material. The producers of this new edition, which premiered at London's Menier Chocolate Factory in 2007, have a convincing answer: It's funny, heartwarming and terrific."

USA TODAY REVIEW:

"A telling moment came early at a recent preview of the new Broadway revival of La Cage Aux Folles. Wrapping the production number We Are What We Are, the delightfully witty and athletic male performers cast as Les Cagelles — the chorus "girls" at an outré nightclub on the French Riviera— tossed a few beach balls into the audience. The crowd, after having some fun, dutifully tossed them back, only to have the dancers hurl them out again. The boisterous back-and-forth escalated until one ball wound up in the mezzanine."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"Much has changed since composer-lyricist Jerry Herman's musical La Cage aux Folles debuted on Broadway in 1983. The material, based on a 1973 French play (and subsequent French movie), has been mainstreamed thanks to a 1996 Hollywood remake called The Birdcage starring Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. The show's implicit gay-rights message has been mainstreamed too, to the point that Jean-Michel (A.J. Shively) appears to be even more of a heartless cad for wanting to hide away his father Georges' decidedly flamboyant spouse, Albin, when Jean-Michel's ultra-conservative future in-laws come to visit."

BLOOMBERG REVIEW:

"The chorus of six long-limbed drag queens in the latest Broadway revival of Jerry Herman’s “La Cage aux Folles” is half that of two earlier outings."
