“La Cage aux Folles” gets another Broadway Revival

Source: Variety

Tony Award winning musical “La Cage aux Folles” is making its way back to Broadway. Read more about it here. This would be the second revival of the show, the last revival (2004) won the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.

In terms of Broadway Revivals, I wish they would bring back “Jekyll & Hyde” (1997). The music was beautiful and I’m still hoping that “Jekyll & Hyde” can follow in the Broadway to Movie trend like “Phantom of the Opera” and “Rent”. That would be fantastic! ::crossing fingers::
