Broadway Revival Of La Cage Aux Folles Now On Sale

To be honest when they announced that they were bringing back La Cage Aux Folles to Broadway I thought they were out of their minds. I mean the last revival just closed five years ago. Sure it won two Tony Awards but it only ran for six months and lost it's entire investment. Now here we are in 2010 and it is returning to the Great White Way once again following a critically acclaimed run at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London.

The last production to come from that theatre was the 2008 Tony nominated production of Sunday In The Park With George. That production was one of the best things that I have ever seen in all my years in New York. Will this production prove to be as successful? You're guess is as good as mine. Previews are set to begin at the Longacre Theater on April 6 in anticipation of an April 18 opening.

Heading the cast are Emmy Award winner Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge who originated his role in the London production. Now while I still think it is too soon for a new revival the producers of the show think otherwise. After all they are the one's fitting the bill. With only two other revivals still running La Cage at least has a shot of being nominated for a Tony Award.Who knows? It may turn out to be the hit of the season. I have been wrong before. Until next time theatre fans.
