Starlight Theatre (4600 Starlight Road, in Swope Park) closes out its summer season with the musical La Cage aux Folles
, a hit that has never lost popularity. Based on a 1973 French play, it debuted on Broadway in 1983 (music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Harvey Fierstein) and won six Tony Awards. La Cage
was revived on Broadway and won a Tony in 2005 for Best Revival, then was revived on Broadway again in 2010 and received yet another Tony, this time for Best Revival of a Musical. Now, George Hamilton (left, in photo) and Christopher Sieber star in the national tour that's based on the 2010 revival. Oh, you want plot? Georges (Hamilton) is owner of a glitzy nightclub in Saint-Tropez, and his partner, Albin (Sieber), is one of the star drag attractions. Mayhem ensues when Georges' son brings his fiancée and her ultraconservative parents to meet them. See kcstarlight.com
