Tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 15) marks a new era for the Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles as the musical welcomes new castmembers Harvey Fierstein and Jeffrey Tambor. To see the two stars in action, click here. To purchase tickets to the show, click here.

How do you keep a hit musical running after an iconic duo departs? [Douglas Hodge, who won a 2010 Tony for his portrayal of Albin/Zaza in the Tony-winning revival of La Cage aux Folles, and Kelsey Grammer of Frasier fame who played Georges, bowed out in February.] Answer: You bring in another “must-see” twosome. A very must-see twosome.

La Cage is currently putting on the glitz with four-time Tony-winner Harvey Fierstein, once again bewigged and bedazzling as ZaZa and Jeffrey “Hey, now!” Tambor (The Larry Sanders Show; Arrested Development) as his dapper “other half.” And while Tambor is a familiar Broadway presence (Glengarry Glen Ross), it’s Fierstein’s nearly 30-year connection to La Cage that makes his debut as a leading performer in the show -- for which he won the writing Best Book of a Musical Tony in 1984 -- a groundbreaking moment in Broadway history.

And for you trivia buffs out there, in another brilliant casting coup, it was Fierstein who presented his predecessor-to-be Hodge with his 2010 Tony statuette! Now playing at the Longacre Theatre, 220 W. 48th St. For tickets, call 212-239-6200 or visit click here.
