Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman. Book by Harvey Fierstein. Based on the play “La Cage Aux Folles” by Jean Poiret. SUPA Productions (ACT). Directed by Garrick Smith. ANU Arts Centre 7 – 22 November
Fabulous? It’s SUPA—of course it’s fabulous! Leave your cynicism at home and enjoy this hilarious, high camp, unabashedly sentimental story of love and comeuppance. La Cage aux Folles is a glitzy musical that shines with the over-the-top SUPA formula of live music, great performances, gorgeous costumes and an innovative light show. The script is a furiously witty celebration of a certain gay culture and lifestyle, and the songs are gorgeous.SUPA’s interpretation is slick, professional, side-splitting and heart-warming.
