Fridays-Sundays

Georges is the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on the French Riviera. Partnered romantically with his high-strung star performer, Albin (who goes by the stage name Zaza), the pair live a charmed life—until Georges’ son, Jean-Michel, turns up engaged to the daughter of a conservative right-wing politician who’s coming to dinner.

Based on the play by Jean Poiret and book by Harvey Fierstein, La Cage tells the story of Georges, the suave owner of a glitzy drag club on the French Riviera and his partner Albin, the clubs’ star performer ‘ZaZa’. ZaZa is played by Greg Hinojosa, the Woodlawn Theatre’s Artistic Director. The romantically paired couple live a charmed life until George’ son, Jean Michel, turns up engaged to the daughter of a conservative right-wing politician who’s joining them for dinner. 

The production features music and lyrics written by Jerry Herman, which are masterfully directed by Andrew Hendley. Choreographed by Chris Rodriguez, this wild and warmhearted production promises to charm audiences of all ages.

 

The revival of La Cage Aux Folles is the only musical to win two Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical in 2005 and 2010. The original Broadway production was nominated for nine Tony Awards in 1984, winning six of them, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. La Cage later inspired the hit film “The Birdcage” in 1996, starring Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. 

The Woodlawn Theatre is San Antonio’s historic local theatre, located in the heart of the Deco District at 1920 Fredericksburg Road, just south of Hildebrand. Free parking with security patrol is available.
