Tickets are on sale now to the Numerica Performing Arts Center’s 2017 Hot August Nights production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES. Producers Don Fox and Jaime Donegan will lead an all-star local cast to produce 12 performances of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical sponsored by Tom K. Michael DDS, PS. The show will run for three weeks: August 3-5, 9-12, 16-19 with Wednesday and Thursday performances at 7:00pm, Friday and Saturday performances at 8:00pm, and a matinee on August 12 at 2:00pm.
Hot August Nights is known for its unique seating – and audiences can expect the same intimate seating for La Cage. Set entirely on the Numerica PAC stage in proscenium-style seating, ticket prices are $25-$29 with front row tables at an additional $10 per seat. This year’s VIP seating is in the Cabana sections. Cabana packages include premium seating for groups of 4-6 in cabana seats with champagne (must be 21 or older) at an additional $25 per seat.
La Cage is set in the French Riviera in the town of St. Tropez, where Georges (played by Matt Cadman) and Albin (played by Matthew Pippin) – two men partnered for better or worse – own a nightclub featuring female impersonators and Albin as the “star” performer. When Georges’ son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of an ultra-conservative politician, Georges agrees to masquerade as “normal” when they meet the family of the bride-to-be, but Albin has other plans – with hilarious results. Parental guidance recommended for adult themes.
