Tony Award-winning musical arrives at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Winner of three Tony Awards, the hilarious revival of La Cage aux Folles was the biggest hit of the 2010 Broadway season. The musical comedy classic, July 24-Aug. 5 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, tells the story of Georges, the owner of a glitzy nighclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner, Albin, who moonlights as glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Goerges’ son brings his fiancée’s conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly! La Cage is a tuneful and touching tale of one family’s struggle to stay together, stay fabulous and, above all, stay true to themselves. The score features hummable tunes, the cast the “notorious and dangerous Cagelles.” 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, 714.556.2787. scfta.org
