La Cage Aux Folles IS coming to the West End

This was announced over a week ago (see What’s on Stage and Playbill articles for more), but for some reason I forgot to write about it at the time…

Originally staged at the Menier Chocolate Factory, it has taken more than 6 months for the transfer to be confirmed, but I have no doubt that it will be well worth the wait.

I saw the show, directed by Terry Johnson, first time around and it was fantastic. I wasn’t the only one to think so! Check out the reviews in the Guardian and Telegraph for another perspective. Whilst it’s a shame that Philip Quast hasn’t remained with the production, seeing Douglas Hodge should make up for that disappointment (his understudy was on when I last saw the show).

The Playhouse Theatre should also be a perfect venue for the piece as it’s small enough for the show to retain the intimate feel that it had at the Menier.

Tickets are now on sale at and I’d recommend getting a move on and booking your ticket. If you didn’t see the show at the Menier, you don’t want to risk missng it again!
