Enjoy a very special offer on tickets to see La Cage Aux Folles at the Playhouse Theatre in London – the Menier Chocolate Factory production now starring Olivier Award Winners, Roger Allam (Privates on Parade, Les Miserables, City of Angels) and Philip Quast (Sunday in the Park with George, Evita, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum).
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Musical, La Cage aux Folles is a timeless and deliciously funny tale of family values, unconditional love, and above all, the need to celebrate who we are. The idyllic existence of Georges and the dazzling drag artiste Albin, star of the La Cage aux Folles club, is threatened when Georges’ son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing politician, who wants to close down the local colourful nightlife! With a visit from the prospective in-laws imminent, they all decide to take drastic action to hide their lifestyle…but can they keep it up?
Jerry Herman’s (Hello, Dolly!, Mack and Mabel and Mame) fabulous score includes I Am What I Am, The Best of Times and Song on the Sand.
Roger Allam and Phillip Quast are contracted to perform until 12th September.
John Barrowman will play the role of Albin from the 14th September until the 28th November. Barrowman created the role of Captain Jack Harkness in the BBC series Doctor Who and Torchwood and has been a judge on talent search shows “I’d Do Anything”,”Any Dream Will Do” and “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria”. He has also starred in numerous theatrical productions worldwide, including the London productions of Anything Goes, Phantom Of The Opera and Sunset Boulevard.
