La Cage Aux Folles stars Douglas Hodge and Philip QuastBased on a French play by Jean Poiret, which was then made into a hugely successful film, La Cage Aux Folles tells the story of Albin and Georges, two middle-aged lovers who run a transvestite nightclub in St. Tropez where Albin’s alter ego ‘ZaZa’ is the star attraction.
