Set in a transvestite club on the French Riviera in the early '70s, "La Cage" features a Tony-winning score (which includes "I Am What I Am" and "The Best of Times") by Jerry Herman and a very funny script by Harvey Fierstein (who is now also starring in the show).

This production began as a small-scale version at the Menier Chocolate Factory, a 180-seat studio space located in (you guessed it) a former chocolate factory in the Southwark section of London. After a 2-month run there, it transferred to London's West End, where it received generally strong reviews and won a Olivier Award as Best Musical Revival. Broadway critics, for the most part, embraced director Terry Johnson’s concept, which is smaller and less glitzy than its predecessors.

Those of you who have never seen a production of "La Cage" on stage may still be familiar with the story. The 1996 American film "The Birdcage" was a remake of the 1978 film "La Cage aux Folles." Both the French film and the Broadway show (which won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1984, then had a short-lived Broadway revival in 2004) were based on Jean Poiret's 1973 play "La Cage aux Folles."

Here's a clip from the 2010 Tony Awards featuring the production's original stars Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge (both of whom left the show on Feb. 13th), and with brief cameos by Will Smith and "Glee" star Matthew Morrison:
