Spinning Tree Theatre concludes the 2019-20 season April 17 – May 3 with Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein’s beloved hit Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles. The only show to win THREE Tony Awards for Best Musical: one for the original (1984) and one for each of its Broadway revivals (2005 and 2010)!

The 20-year relationship between club owner Georges and head drag performer Albin faces a test when their son announces his engagement to the daughter of ultra-conservative parents. To please Jean-Michel, Georges and Albin agree to hide their relationship and play it straight for a dinner with potential in-laws. A fabulously fun musical about family, identity and loving who you are. Beloved songs from La Cage aux Folles include I Am What I Am, The Best of Times, Song on the Sand, Look Over There and With Anne on My Arm.

Andrew Grayman-Parkhurst and Valerie Martin co-direct with music director Brad Foster. The La Cage orchestra features Foster on piano, Brian Wilson on bass and John Gilmore on percussion. Jerry Jay Cranford (Albin/Zaza) headlines a cast that includes Robert J. Hingula (Georges), Ryan Jacobs (Jean-Michel), Addison Landes (Anne), Zach Faust (Jacob), Greg Butell (Dindon/Renaud), Valerie Bracken-Dykes (Marie Dindon/Mme Renaud), Keshana Cook (Jacqueline), Spencer Gochis (Francis) and featuring Les Cagelles: Eddie Andrews, Jacque Davidson, Alex Gumminger, Dillon May and Alex Petersen.
