A lavishly funny tale of unconditional love and family values has taken to the stage at Leeds Grand Theatre this week.

La Cage Aux Folles, which is on its first ever UK tour, is being performed at the city theatre until Saturday. (March 25)

It follows the story of Georges, the manager of a Saint Tropez nightclub, and his partner Albin, a drag artiste and the club’s star attraction. They live an idyllic existence in the south of France until Georges’ son Jean-Michel announces his engagement to the daughter of a notorious politician; a politician who is determined to shut down the local colourful night-life.

The production reminds all to celebrate that ‘life’s not worth a damn ‘till you can say I am what I am.’

Book online at or call the theatre’s box office on 0844 848 2700.
