CHICAGO (Oct. 17, 2011) - Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to announce that individual tickets for three-time Tony Award®- winner, including the award for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, go on sale Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 at 10 a.m. LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, starring George Hamilton and Chris Sieber, is coming to the Bank of America Theatre (18 W. Monroe) Dec. 20, 2011- Jan. 1, 2012. This hilarious new production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES was the biggest hit of the 2010 Broadway season, leaving audiences in stitches night after night!
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 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.
The creative team includes director Terry Johnson, who won a 2010 Tony Award for his LA CAGE AUX FOLLES direction, choreographer Lynne Page, set designer Tim Shortall, costume designer Matthew Wright, lighting designer Nick Richings, sound designer Jonathan Deans and orchestrator/musical supervisor Jason Carr. The tour is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, David Babani and Fran and Barry Weissler.
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 AUX FOLLES won three 2010 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Director of a Musical (Terry Johnson).
