This multiple Tony Award winner for Best Musical about a gay couple who own a glitzy drag club is given a fresh, sleek and racy look that only East West Players can deliver.
The charmed lives of Georges, the suave owner, and Albin, his high-strung star performer, are turned upside down when George’s son, Jean-Michel, returns with his fiancée, Anne. Cultures collide as Georges and Albin are introduced to Anne and her ultra-conservative parents in this jubilant musical that inspired the movie, The Birdcage.
This production is produced in association with the Los Angeles LGBT Center and additional funding is provided by The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation, OUT Fund, and Asian Giving Circle. In community partnership with Gay Men’s Chorus Los Angeles.
Celebrate the final performances June 22-26 with outgoing artistic director Tim Dang with a Chinese buffet and drinks one hour before showtime Wednesday through Saturday night. At the closing performance Sunday matinee, the buffet and drinks will occur after the performance with the cast/crew.
