TUE 24 - SAT 28 JAN

Bill Kenwright presents

La Cage Aux Folles


A major new production of the West End and Broadway award-winning extravaganza!

Starring John Partridge, Adrian Zmed and Marti Webb

Georges and the dazzling drag artiste Albin, star of La Cage Aux Folles, live an idyllic existence in the heart of St Tropez. But all may be about to change. When Georges' son becomes engaged to the daughter of a right-wing politician, a meeting of the parents forces them to cover up their vibrant lifestyle.

Bill Kenwright presents a spectacular new version of the much loved musical with West End star John Partridge as Albin, Broadway leading man Adrian Zmed as Georges and Marti Webb. John's West End credits include A Chorus Line at the London Palladium, Cats, Starlight Express, Chicago, and on TV, BBC's EastEnders and Over The Rainbow. Adrian's Broadway credits include Blood Brothers, Grease and Falsettos, on TV as Vince Romano in TJ Hooker and on the big screen as Johnny in Grease 2.

Tantalising and touching, this is a lavishly funny tale of unconditional love and family values, and which ultimately encourages you to celebrate life 'that’s not worth a damn ‘til you can say I am what I am'.

The show-stopping score includes The Best Of Times, Song On The Sand, and I Am What I Am.

Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman.
Book by Harvey Fierstein.
