La Cage Aux Folles To Begin Previews Tonight On Broadway

Now while I still think it is too soon for another La Cage Aux Folles revival I am willing to give it a chanch. After all where else are you going to see five-time Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer in a big splashy Broadway musical? This new revival is based on the highly successful London production that opened to rave reviews in 2008 at the Menier Chocolate Factory. That production won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival as well as Best Actor for Douglas Hodge who is recreating the role of Albin for the Broadway revival.

Opening night is set for April 18, 2010 at the Longacre Theatre. The last revival opened in December 2004 and while it won the Tony Award for Best Revival it closed within six months. Will this production suffer the same fate or will this new production be one of the biggest hits of the season? With only two other revivals still running it definitely has a good shot. Not only that but the last show that transferred from the Menier Chocolate Factory was the highly successful revival of Sunday in the Park With George which was one of the best things that I have ever seen. Here's hoping lighting strikes twice. We shall see.
