EXTENDED DUE TO WONDERFUL AUDIENCE RESPONSE!!!!
Taking audiences on a roller-coaster ride of sequins, feathers and family values, La Cage Aux Folles high-kicks its way onto the Knightsbridge Theatre stage. This classic Broadway-style musical will run in conjunction with a different charity each weekend, hoping to give back to the Los Angeles community in addition to lighthearted, spirited entertainment. Broadway's first gay-themed musical is based on the play La Cage Aux Folles by Jean Poiret (and book by Harvey Fierstein), from which the hilarious English-language film The Birdcage was based. Set in the present day, the Knightsbridge's production takes place in a Silver Lake bar and pays homage to cultural icons and history, inspired by the glory days of old-style drag bars, cabarets and entertainers. Each weekend of La Cage will be dedicated to a different charity, with donations collected from the audience - half of the donation proceeds will go to that organization and the other half will support our nonprofit theatre company.
