"EPAC's Dazzling LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is Magnificent"Kelli Curtain, Theatre Sensation
The French classic comedy La Cage Aux Folles snatched up six Tony Awards and nine nominations following its 1983 Broadway debut before earning a 1996 film adaption 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.
"'La Cage' is all about family"Michael C. Upton, The Ephrata Review
EPAC's production will be led by director Rich Repkoe. "At its heart, La Cage Aux Folles is about family and the things we do for the people we love. It is an enchanting evening of song and dance, pageantry and laughter, but at its core, it speaks to the things we do for our children," says Repkoe. He adds, "To quote Oscar Hammerstein, 'Love isn't love until you give it away.' Don't miss your chance to escape to La Cage Aux Folles and be dazzled!"
Led by Repkoe, this slapstick comedy will keep audiences entertained from act to act. Follow the plight of son Jean-Michel as he tries to juggle love and loyalty in this unconventional tale of family values.
