'La Cage aux Folles' sets full cast and creative team
Regent's Park Open Air Theatre presents the celebratory musical, directed by Tim Sheader to continue its summer season, with performances from 29 July to 16 September.
They are who they are — and they're the cast of La Cage aux Folles! Regent's Park Open Air Theatre has set the full cast for its summer production of the Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman musical.
The principal cast includes Carl Mullaney as Albin, Billy Carter as Georges, Ben Culleton as Jean-Michel, Julie Jupp as Marie Dindon, Shakeel Kimotho as Jacob, Debbie Kurup as Jacqueline, John Owen-Jones as Edward Dindon, and Sophie Pourret as Anne.
The cast also includes Jak Allen-Anderson as Hanna, Jordan Lee Davies as Chantal, Daniele Coombe as Mme. Renaud, and Hemi Yeroham as Francis. Craig Armstrong, Tom Bales, Taylor Bradshaw, Lewis Easter, Harvey Ebbage, George Lynham, JP McCue, and Rishard-Kyro Nelson play Cagelles, and Nicole Deon, Emma Johnson, and Alexandra Waite-Roberts complete the ensemble.
The creative team, led by director Tim Sheader, includes makeup designer Guy Common, costume designer Ryan Dawson Laight, lighting designer Howard Hudson, sound designer Nick Lidster, intimacy support Ingrid Mackinnon, choreographer Stephen Mear, voice and text director Janis Price, set designer Colin Richmond, music director Ben van Tienen, and music supervisor Jennifer Whyte.
In La Cage aux Folles, based on Jean Poiret's play, Georges and Albin hide their true selves from their son's ultra-conservative in-laws, but eventually rediscover the true meaning of family and joy of living authentically. The Olivier- and Tony Award-winning musical features famous songs like "I Am What I Am" and "The Best of Times."
La Cage aux Folles is at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre from 29 July to 16 September.
