This week, in a podcast double bill, we're getting to know the cast and team behind a new play version of Tom's favourite musical, La Cage aux Folles by By Jean Poiret, being produced by Park Theatre and starting on February 12th.
The play is being produced from a translation from the original French by Simon Callow, who we have an exclusive conversation with in the next episode of this series. In this episode, we sit down with Artistic Director of Park Theatre, Jez Bond and Michael Mattis, who is playing Georges.
From the Park Theatre Website: Nightclub owner Georges and his dazzling drag artiste partner Albin create the most spectacular shows in St. Tropez. But when Georges’ son Laurent announces his engagement to the daughter of a notoriously right-wing politician determined to bring the curtain down on the town’s vibrant nightlife, the real performance begins.
As Georges and Albin entertain their soon-to-be in laws and attempt to conceal their true nature for the sake of their son, how long can the façade last?
