Commentaires : After a total sell-out season at the Menier Chocolate Factory, it was revived at the Playhouse in October for what was announced as a strictly limited 12 week run. There were some cast changes for this transfer, significantly with Denis Lawson as Georges. This transfer was hugely successful so the three months was extended, and in order to boost the box office and cope with a series of extensions, the leading roles were regularly re-cast every three months. In January 2009 the replacements were Graham Norton (Albin) and Steven Pacey (Georges); in May Roger Allam played Albin and Philip Quast reprised his original role as Georges; in September John Barrowman and Simon Burke played Albin and Georges respectively; and for the final months Douglas Hodge and Denis Lawson returned to end what had been a triumphant run. It finally closed on January 2nd 2010. The production won an Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and Douglas Hodge won the Best Actor Award.
Presse : MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "It may not be a great musical, but it is still a showbiz landmark in its genial endorsement of gay marriage."
NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Terry Johnson’s old-fashioned, even reactionary production, which fits far more comfortably into the Playhouse than the little Chocolate Factory, scene of its January opening, reminds us just why La Cage aux Folles still exerts such a strong appeal for traditional, non-gay audiences."
LISA MARTLAND for THE STAGE says, "La Cage is still a winner more than 20 years after its original Broadway opening."
QUENTIN LETTS for THE DAILY MAIL says, " La Cage is a belter of a night out."
Sam Marlowe for THE TIMES says, "Suddenly, the West End sparkles...a production that delights."
MICHAEL COVENEY for THE INDEPENDENT says, " Fantastic, melodic score."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "This joyous show and this wonderful performance deserve every hurrah and standing ovation they receive...This is a glorious night of showbiz razzle-dazzle and emotional generosity."
