Get out of your winter rut and travel with OLLI to Riverside Dinner Theater in Fredericksburg.  Spend a swell afternoon dining and then enjoying the tuneful, uplifting, and tacky American musical, La Cage aux Folles.

Harvey Fierstein wrote the book for La Cage with music by Jerry Herman.  The original 1983 Broadway production won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book.

La Cage focuses on Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and the nightclub’s star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges’ son brings home his fiancee’s ultra-conservative parents to meet the pair.  Be prepared to laugh and be bedazzled by the singing, dancing, and sequins.

*You must register before February 15.
