Jean-Michel and Anne are newly engaged, and now her straight-laced parents want to meet his. The only problem? His birth-mother is out of the picture, his dad owns a drag nightclub, and his mom is the star of the show! Jean-Michel wants just one night with his parents playing it “straight” to impress Anne’s parents. What’s a Drag Queen to do? If you’re a fan of Mama Ru and The Birdcage is a favorite, then you’ll love Jerry Herman’s original “Her”story-making Broadway musical – La Cage aux Folles!
La Cage aux Folles is on stage at Arizona Broadway Theatre Jan 24 – Feb 28, 2020, and then transfers to the Herberger Theater Center in Downtown Phoenix March 6 – 22, 2020. All tickets can be purchased through the ABT Box Office by calling 623-776-8400 x0.

“I Am What I Am” IMPACT PROJECT
Opening on Broadway in 1983, Jerry Herman’s La Cage aux Folles broke barriers for gay representation by becoming one of the first hit Broadway musicals centered around a same-sex relationship. Since it’s ground-breaking Broadway debut, the show and the now infamous torch-song “I Am What I Am” have become an anthem for inclusion and acceptance within the greater LGBTQ+ community worldwide.
While the central theme of La Cage focuses on issues of acceptance and inclusion for members of the LGBTQ+ community, our intent with the I Am What I Am! teen-youth anti-bullying IMPACT PROJECT is to broaden the focus of acceptance and inclusion amongst all, especially teen-youth who confront the demands and pressures inflicted by today’s modern, fast-paced social atmosphere regardless of one’s sexual orientation, gender identity, race, religious, or socio-economic background.
