Coming Soon: La Cage aux Folles

July 8, 2012

Event: “La Cage aux Folles” by W!ld Rice
Venue: Esplanade Theatre
Run: 20th July – 4th Aug 2012

One of the year’s most highly-anticipated musicals opens at the Esplanade Theatre in less than two weeks’ time, and it is none other than W!ld Rice’s staging of the classic Broadway musical “La Cage au Folles”.

“La Cage” the musical, winner of 6 Tony awards in 1983 (including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book), is based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret, and features music and lyrics by famed Broadway songwriter Jerry Herman, who also famously composed the scores to “Hello, Dolly!” and “Mame” as well.

Originally set in the French town of Saint Tropez, in this upcoming production W!ld Rice adapts the musical to a local setting…Tanjong Pagar to be exact.

Glen Goei directs, while Elaine Chan is musical director.

The lead roles of “George” and “Albin” are played by Malaysia’s Tony Eusoff and our very own Ivan Heng respectively, while the cast also features the likes of Hossan Leong, Karen Tan, Darius Tan, Judee Tan, Andrew Lua and Brendon Fernandez, amongst others.

On top of the remarkable score, audiences can also look forward to an impressive chorus line of glitzy and glamourous dancers, also known as the “Cagelles”.

“La Cage” promises to be a most fabulous night out at the theatre, and we absolutely can’t wait to be there.

So go get your best outfit, and put a little more mascara on, and head on down to the Esplanade Theatre to catch W!ld Rice’s most fabulous Broadway musical staging yet!
