Tony Award-winning Best Musical filled with hysterical and biting satire, disarming prejudices against alternative lifestyles.

At its Broadway premiere, La Cage aux Folles won six Tony Awards for its lighthearted and entertaining tale boldly addressing such taboos as cross-dressing and same sex marriage. Subsequent Broadway revivals of La Cage aux Folles—in 2005 and 2010—also won Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical, and a film adaptation received three Oscar nominations, raising the story’s profile in the public discourse.
