La Cage Aux Folles - Review

What the popular press had to say...

"It may not be a great musical, but it is still a showbiz landmark in its genial endorsement of gay marriage."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Terry Johnson's old-fashioned, even reactionary production, which fits far more comfortably into the Playhouse than the little Chocolate Factory, scene of its January opening, reminds us just why La Cage aux Folles still exerts such a strong appeal for traditional, non-gay audiences."
Nicholas DE Jongh for The Evening Standard

"La Cage is still a winner more than 20 years after its original Broadway opening."
Lisa Martland for The Stage

"La Cage is a belter of a night out."
Quentin Letts for Daily Mail

"Suddenly, the West End sparkles...a production that delights."
Sam Marlowe for The Times

" Fantastic revival...rich, melodic score."
Michael Coveney forThe Independent

"This joyous show and this wonderful performance deserve every hurrah and standing ovation they receive...This is a glorious night of showbiz razzle-dazzle and emotional generosity."
Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph
