Come join us on the French Riviera for a night of love, laughs, illusions and truths, and the triumph of family over bullies and bigots.

New Line continues its season in March 2019 with Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein's subversive comedy about real family values in a world that doesn't always value family. In its original 1983 production -- before gay marriage was legal -- the show was a safely old-fashioned musical comedy. But in its 2008 London revival and 2010 Broadway revival, the show was transformed from a genial comedy into a more serious story with laughs. Without rewriting it, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES has become a 21st-century musical -- and a New Line show.

Based on the 1973 French play and its 1978 film adaptation, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES tells the story of a middle-aged show business couple, grappling with aging, fidelity, kids, and holding on to their dignity when the world around them would rather strip it away. At the center is Georges, a St. Tropez nightclub owner, and his husband Albin, who is also the club's erratic drag headliner Zaza. When Georges' son gets engaged to the daughter of a right-wing politician, all hell breaks loose -- and suddenly we can see 2018 in the politics and culture war onstage.

The original 1983 Broadway production ran four years and 1,761 performances. The show received nine Tony nominations and won six, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book -- beating out Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George. It's been revived on Broadway and in London multiple times.

The intimate New Line production will be directed by Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy-Windsor, with scenic and lighting design by Rob Lippert, costume design by Sarah Porter, and sound design by Ryan Day.

Auditions will be held June 11 and 18, 2018.

Season ticket go on sale in May, and single tickets go on sale in August.
