LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, Broadway’s most fabulous musical comedy, arrives on our shores this July in a divine new production by Singapore’s sexiest theatre company, W!LD RICE. Boasting an international cast, spectacular sets, lavish costumes, snazzy dance routines and truly heartwarming songs, this boisterous and uplifting musical is a grand celebration of family and love.

With director Glen Goei at the helm, this 11 time Tony award winner will be given a total
makeover in the inimitable W!LD RICE style. By his side and leading a powerhouse cast of 22
performers, Ivan Heng plays Albin, an aging cabaret star plagued by mid-life insecurity. Following the success of Emily of Emerald Hill, this new collaboration between the two theatre doyens promises to raise the bar yet again.

WILD RICE is proud to present two of Malaysia’s finest musical theatre talents, Tony Eusoff and Aaron Khaled. Making their Singapore debuts with LA CAGE, the pair will play the lead roles of George (Albin’s partner) and John (George’s son). Supporting them and providing much of the musical’s comic relief is a lineup of Singapore’s best: Hossan Leong, Karen Tan, Darius Tan, Tan Kheng Hua, Brendon Fernandez and Judee Tan.

No musical is complete without a singing and tap dancing chorus line. 13 tall, beautiful, feisty and rather dangerous showgirls known as Les Cagelles have been cast from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Australia, U.S.A and the United Kingdom. Audiences are in for a treat with this dynamite bunch as they set the stage alight with their pizzazz.


LA CAGE AUX FOLLES guarantees to be nothing short of high-camp fabulousness as Goei has assembled a creative team of individuals who are at the top of their fields. With musical direction by Elaine Chan, choreography by Lisa Keegan, sets by CK Chia, lighting by Mac Chan, costumes by Frederick Lee, hair by Ashley Lim and makeup by Beno Lim, LA CAGE is set to be the most dazzling and highly anticipated theatrical event of 2012!

Almost 30 years since it first premiered on Broadway, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES remains as
relevant today as it ever was with its themes of family, love, acceptance and being true to one’s self. Featuring a glorious score of memorable songs (including I Am What I Am and The Best of Times), LA CAGE is undoubtedly a musical comedy classic and W!LD RICE’s extraordinary new version will show you why!
