La Cage aux Folles features a book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman. The original 1983 Broadway production was based on the 1978 French film and received nine nominations for Tony Awards and won six, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. Both the 2004 and 2010 Broadway revivals won the Tony Awards for Best Revival.
The story focuses on a gay couple: the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and his romantic partner and star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when George’s son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée's ultra-conservative parents to meet them.
