UAH Theatre jumps feet first into November with its spectacularly colorful production of the Tony Award-winning musical La Cage Aux Folles, the musical that inspired the movie The Birdcage, starring the late Robin Williams, and Broadway star Nathan Lane.

This delightful musical centers on a gay couple--Georges, the manager of a nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction--and the the comedic adventures that ensue when the couple’s son brings home his fiancee’s ultra-conservative parents to meet them. This Tony Award-winner for Best Musical (1984) and Best Revival (2005 & 2011) is directed by the head of UAH Theatre, Associate Professor David Harwell. The production is in collaboration with UAH’s Department of Music and the Huntsville Ballet.

In working on La Cage Aux Folles, Harwell says, “This production has been such a joy to work on, from the design to the music to the dancing. The students bring so much energy and commitment to everything they do. Watching them grow into their roles as performers, designers, and technicians and light up this stage with their talent is wonderful. And of course I always enjoy collaborating with my colleagues in Music and my artistic partners at the Huntsville Ballet. We have a 15 year history together and our partnerships only grow stronger. La Cage is life-affirming, really funny, and audiences will leave the theatre with their toes tapping and hearts singing.”

La Cage Aux Folles runs November 6-9 and 13-16 at 7:30pm and November 10 and 17 at 2:30pm in the Chan Auditorium located on the UAH campus at 4832 Holmes Ave NW, Huntsville, 35805. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $10 for seniors and non-UAH students, and free for UAH students with ID.
