Family! Marriage! And drag queens!
The 3-time Tony winner La Cage Aux Folles is coming to Houston, starring the talented (and tan) George Hamilton!
If you’ve seen The Birdcage — with Robin Williams, Nathan Lane and Hank Azaria — you know the story! This is the musical version.
“LA CAGE tells the story of Georges, the owner of a swanky and sexy Saint-Tropez nightclub, and his partner Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous drag queen songstress Zaza. When their son brings his fiancée (and her conservative parents) home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly!” (TUTS.com.)
Logan Keslar, a Houston native, is in the touring cast and performed in the Tony-winning Broadway production.
“It’s cool that I get to come home and do it for all my friends and family who weren’t able to get to New York to see the show,” Keslar told us. “It’s a little different because people who come to see the show maybe don’t recognize me…. Just look for the big blonde wig.”
Yep Logan plays one of the drag queens! A job that entails some fancy footwork on some pumped-up heels. I figured I’d give ’em a whirl.
Check out La Cage Aux Folles at the Hobby Center April 24th through May 6th!
