Based on the play La Cage aux Folles by JEAN POIRET

Plot Synopsis

In its original inception, the French play La Cage aux Folles was a comical farce, full of sight gags and wildly drawn characters. It took the combined talents of Jerry Herman (Mame, Hello, Dolly!) and Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song Trilogy) to give the story its heart. In the words of playwright Harvey Feirstein: "La Cage aux Folles is a love story, the tale of a marriage of 20 years almost ruined by a son's thoughtlessness. Here is the age-old triangle of mother, father and child. What child has not at some point in its life been ashamed to introduce its parents to friends? What parent has not wondered, 'where did we go wrong?' What marriage has not been tested in these familial flames?"
