USER REVIEWS

what happened?

I saw the show in August of last year, and I thought it was wonderful. Then I saw it again in November, and Douglas and Kelsey were both great again. But I noticed they were lucky enough to have that secretary from Moonlighting in the cast. I really didnt notice Mme. Dindon when I saw it in August, in fact I dont remember anything about her, but I thought Ms Beasley really made her something special. The Cagelles were fantastic. And Fred Applegate was great as Deputy Dindon again. I just saw it two nights ago, again. I dont know what they are doing. Its nothing like it was. Harvey is Harvey, A.J. Shively and Elena Shaddow are fantastic. Perfect. and Chris Hoch is as always, great at every role he plays, but who is the goon playing Dindon? One note. He should be the silent one sitting on the fishermans table. Luckily Ms Beasley rises above his energy. And once again, the Cagelles are great.

Good show. TERRIBLE SEATS. HORRIBLE MANAGER

Show is worth seeing... as reviews prior also indicate. However... we had row B right orchestra aisle... tickets were not cheap... but I figured... hey, its the first row after what they call "cabaret seating".... so maybe its worth it. well! the chairs of the table infront of us... were literally on top of our laps! we were so squeezed in we could barely even move! my poor husband had to sit sideways. forget the fact that the people infront of us had blocked the view and we had to constantly move side to side to see the stage. I looked around to see if there were other seats to perhaps move to but on the orchestra level it was all full. I certainly wouldnt want to pay full price and seat on the mez.level. so i didnt say anything. at the end of the play I politely asked to be pointed to the manager. I figured if nothing else, they should try to correct this for the next people who buy these seats. when i went up to the manager and explained the situation, he rudely looks at me and with an angry tone and look of "i cant be bothered" he says/yells: why are you telling me NOW! you should have told me before. all reviews on the web are positive about these seats and you are complaining. then he walks away! my response was "im only saying it so that you can correct the problem and as a manager you should not be reacting in this manner... even if there is nothing you can do the least you can say is Im sorry you had a bad experience but I wish you had told me earlier to see if I can help!... His response? He pulls his pined tag that says MANAGER and throws it at me saying: YOU TRY BEING THE MANAGER THEN! I was so so so annoyed! HORRIBLE, RUDE & UNPROFESSIONAL manager! This is what theater going has come down to? Please! These are not $20 txs! if they expect us to pay high prices... then they should provide a quality experience! Im spreading this review .... and calling AMEX to complain! Bottom line, avoid ROW B!

La Cage Aux Folles

This play was seen on 8/4/10 in the Longacre Theater Midtown: I admit that I am a fan of ?The Birdcage? starring Robin Williams so I was excited to see this current production starring Kelsey Grammer, as Georges, and Douglas Hodges as his partner, Albin. To those of you who also liked the movie, you will not be disappointed in this production. Although Kelsey Grammer was very good, it truly was Douglas Hodge who, perfectly cast, stole the show. Hodge, who is an extremely talented actor, has correctly chosen this production to showcase his talents for his Broadway debut. Sadly A.J. Shively, as the son Jean-Michel, was poorly cast but Elena Shaddow, who plays his fianc?e Anne, shines in her role. This play was obviously a crowd pleaser but be warned, if you pay for the ?cabaret? seating you WILL be part of the show! As I was walking out of the theater, I found myself thinking that I would be willing to see this play again. Not surprisingly, I heard those same sentiments from other theater goers also exiting the theater. This play is a good night out and will have you smiling, which you will not stop doing, before the opening number is through. Tickets are a bit pricy but well worth it for this production.

Amazing Show

I would recomend this show to everyone!!! Very funny, and dancers are amazing!!!

One of the Best !

Grammer and Hodge a Great combination ! A truly must see...

A rare night at the theater

The night that I attended the performance there was a failure in the sound system resulting in a stoppage of the show. During the lull, Kelsey Grammer took the stage, told jokes and stories to entertain the crowd. Sometimes we lose sight of just how talented these actors are and that they truly can perform under any circumstances. What could have been a disaster turned out to be a moment that the crowd may never again experience. Thanks to each member of the cast for completing what turned out to be an exceptional performance.

OUTSTANDING!

Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge develop such believable and lovable characters that you cannot help but love this show. It is truly a must see!

LA CAGE IS BRILLANTLY RE-THOUGHT

This is what a revival should be and seldom is. A bold and entertaining rethinking of one of the best musicals of the 80s. The book is just as timely now as it was then and the score and lyrics are still first rate. The casting is perfect and the more intimate staging shows the strong material off to its best advantage. This is a wonderful revival of a first rate show.

A must-see!

Easily the best show on Broadway this season. Douglas Hodge gives the performance of a lifetime. He plays Albin/Zaza with such warmth and sincerity...I cannot recommend this show highly enough. And Robin de Jesus is a tour-de-force!

I have to admit, I loved it.

I dont know if I saw a different show from the others that are posting on here, but I have to admit, I loved this show! I had an absolute blast at the performance, as did everyone else who was there with me. I sat in the front row and really took in all that the show had to offer. True, there are no amazing vocal performances, but it didnt seem to take away from the show. It seemed that the entire audience was overjoyed and enthusiastic after the show was over. I hope that people give it a chance since, I felt, that everyone in the show was working very hard to entertain the masses and I fell for it hook, line and sinker!

LaCage

I have seen all 3 versions...Th e first in 83 was a 5 star, the one in 03 was a 4 star and this one is a 2 or 3 star. It was very entertaining, but you could tell they were watching the budget. Their were only 4 women? working in La Cage wherein the other productions had up to 8 people.

Oy

I have to agree with the above poster. No one can really sing. I felt I was watching a college production. " I am what I am" was a big let down as well as everything else.

Oh No!

This heartfelt and sincere musical has been decimated by Terry Johnsons, immature cynical homophobic direction that once again makes gay people insubstantial, laughable clowns to play to the presumed biases of the contemporary Broadway audience. Kelsey Grammer hasnt the voice or the substance for Georges and Douglas Hodges Albin is never more than superficial. What Hodge cant sing, he mugs in an embarrassing performance. Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman should be humiliated by what has been done to their great and clever use of the musical to advance awareness in the culture at large. Of course, they are making money from it...
