Stand Up For… Theatre returns to the Chesapeake Art center with La Cage aux Folles a musical by Harvey Fierstein with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret, La Cage focuses on a gay couple: Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring dragentertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction “ZaZa”, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges's son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée's ultra-conservative parents to meet them. La cage aux folles literally means "the cage of mad women". However, folles is also a slang term for effeminate homosexuals (queens).

“La Cage aux Folles” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.LA CAGE AUX FOLLESBook by Harvey FiersteinMusic and Lyrics by Jerry HermanBased on the play by Jean Poiret
