About La Cage Aux Folles

La Cage Aux Folles is based on the 1973 French play of the same name written by Jean Poiret.

The play follows the story of Georges, the manager of a Saint Tropez nightclub, and his partner, Albin, a drag artiste and the club’s star attraction, who live an idyllic existence in the south of France.

All may be about to change, however, when Georges’ son Jean-Michel announces his engagement to the daughter of a notorious right-wing politician determined to close down the local colourful night-life.

The meeting of the parents follows and forces Georges and Albin to cover up their vibrant lifestyle to ensure Jean-Michel can marry his love.


La Cage Aux Folles sees John Partridge star as Albin. Partridge’s theatre credits include the West End productions of A Chorus Line, Cats, Starlight Express and Chicago. He is also known for his role as Christian Clarke in BBC’s EastEnders.

Alongside Partridge, Adrian Zmed, known for his roles in 80s TV show T.J. Hooker, the film Grease 2, and on Broadway in Grease, Falsettos and Blood Brothers, stars as Georges.
