This French classic comedy debuted on Broadway in 1983, snatching up six Tony Awards and nine nominations before earning a 1996 film adaption, The Birdcage, starting Robin Williams, Nathan Lane, and Gene Hackman.
Enjoy the bawdy and boisterous antics unfolding at a Saint Tropez nightclub owned by Georges and headlined by his longtime love Albin. The drama unfolds when Georges' son, Jean-Michel, brings his fiancée's conservative parents home for dinner, prompting the pair to try to conceal both their lifestyle and ownership of the drag club downstairs! Cues of acceptance and inclusion make this musical comedy even more relevant today.
Led by director Rich Repkoe, this slapstick comedy will keep audiences entertained from act to act. Follow son Jean-Michel's plight as he tries to juggle love and loyalty in this unconventional tale of family values.
