The beloved gender-bending musical comedy and winner of six Tony Awards® including Best Musical closes out the Signature season starring Bobby Smith.
The twenty year relationship between Georges, a club-owner, and Albin, the head drag performer, faces a test when their son announces his engagement to the daughter of ultra-conservative political parents. To please their son, Georges and Albin agree to hide their lifestyle and play it straight for a dinner with the potential in-laws. However, Albin?‘s different definition of ?normal? threatens to upend the entire supper with hilarious results.
With an iconic score by Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!; Mame) featuring ?“I Am What I Am?” and ?“The Best of Times?” and hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein (Newsies, Kinky Boots), La Cage Aux Folles is a fabulously fun musical about family, identity and loving who you are.
