La Cage Aux Folles is an award-winning musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Based on Jean Poiret’s 1973 play of the same name (which also inspired Hollywood film The Birdcage), La Cage Aux Folles first opened on Broadway in 1983 to resounding critical acclaim.
Over three decades, the show has enjoyed considerable success on Broadway. The landmark first production received nine Tony Award nominations and won six awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. The musical has since been revived twice on Broadway – in 2004 and 2010 – and won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical both times. In total, La Cage Aux Folles has won 11 Tony Awards over its three Broadway productions.
W!LD RICE’s spectacular production of La Cage Aux Folles in 2012 was a hit with audiences and critics alike. In relocating the story to Singapore, director Glen Goei found new meaning and fresh life in this heartwarming tale of unconditional love and family values.
In April 2017, W!LD RICE once again re-imagine La Cage Aux Folles for a new generation of audiences. Iconic songs like I Am What I Am and The Best of Times will soar through the Victoria Theatre as this beloved musical encourages one and all to celebrate the fact that life’s not worth a damn, ’til you can say, “I am what I am!”\
