Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga announces performance dates of La Cage Aux Folles
The community is invited to attend Ensemble Theatre of Chattanooga's (ETC) performance of Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman's La Cage Aux Folles. This musical features a book by Fierstein and lyrics and music by Herman. Performances will be held at the theater located inside Eastgate Town Center at 5600 Brainerd Rd, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2:30pm, from July 17 - 27.
Based on the 1973 French play written by Jean Poiret, this glimmering show follows the lives of Georges and his partner Albin. Georges owns a nightclub in which Albin is the star attraction. When Georges' son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancee's ultra-conservative parents, heartwarming hilarity begins. Themes of love, family, and acceptance resonate in this inspiring musical and of course, drag queens abound!
"La Cage is ultimately a play about filial, approval, and most importantly, love," says director Garry Lee Posey. "Although the musical is around 30 years old, it is still very appropriate, given the light of recent court decisions with regards to same sex unions. The music is moving, the tunes are infectious and the themes and messages which appear, I think, make extremely valid points."
General Admission tickets will be $20 for adults, and $15 for students with presented student ID. Tickets will be for sale at the box office or also by calling 423-602-8640. Free parking is available at Eastgate Town Center.
"La Cage Aux Folles" is directed by Garry Lee Posey and music directed by Jason Whitehead.
