CenterStage presents the six-time Tony Award-winning musical “La Cage aux Folles,” transforming their auditorium into the Saint Tropez nightclub. “La Cage aux Folles” is about Georges and Albin, a happy couple who happen to own a nightclub where Albin is the star performer Zaza. All is fine and well in their world until Georges’s son Jean-Michel (from a confusing time in Georges’s youth) announces that he is engaged. And the fiancée happens to be the daughter of ultra-conservative parents. The excitement and confusion culminate into a hilarious evening when the two families meet. With beautiful chorus “girls,” a romantic score, and Eddie D. Lewis reprising his role as Albin/Zaza, this promises to be an unforgettable production. —Laura Morton
