La Cage aux Folles theatre review by Paul Heath at the New Wimbledon Theatre, London.

La Cage aux Folles theatre review

It’s hard to believe that Harvey Fierstein‘s Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles dates all of the way back to the early 1980s. Following countless revivals and nationwide tours across so many countries around the world over the years, not only does the story feel so worryingly relevant in today’s social and political climate, but also still manages to harvest so much magic, wonder and rapturous applause night after night, nearly thirty-five years since its conception.

Set in St. Tropez on the French Riviera, La Cage aux Folles opens in the famous establishment of the same name; a renowned drag nightclub, »

NBC has added stage director Jerry Mitchell and live-television director Alex Rudzinski to the creative team for its next live musical event, “Bye Bye Birdie Live!” Mitchell and Rudzinski worked together on last year’s NBC musical, “Hairspray Live!”

“It’s a joy to work with Jerry Mitchell and Alex Rudzinski again after their incredible partnership on ‘Hairspray Live!,’ which elevated our live musicals to a new height,” said Bob Greenblatt, chairman, NBC Entertainment. “Jerry is the cream of the crop of Broadway director/choreographers with two hits running on Broadway right now, and Alex is peerless in the world of live television direction.”

Mitchell served as choreographer on “Hairspray Live!” and is the director of Broadway musical “Get On Your Feet,” about the life of Gloria Estefan. He is a Tony winner for 2013’s “Kinky Boots” and 2005’s revival of “La Cage Aux Folles.”

Flipping the Flop: How Disney’s Newsies Went from the Big Screen to Broadway and Back Again

13 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Disney’s 2012 Tony-winning Broadway musical Newsies makes its debut on the big screen this week, playing in movie theaters nationwide for three days beginning Thursday as part of a new partnership between Fathom Events and Disney Theatrical Productions.

It’s an unexpected move for the cult favorite, which had a long journey to success.

Newsies was primed to be the High School Musical hit of 1992 — with a cast of singing and dancing teens (including a young Christian Bale), a score by composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Jack Feldman, and future HSM director Kenny Ortega at the helm. »
