La Cage Aux Folles with Kelsey Grammer

On Thursday night I had a ticket to see La Cage Aux Folles, looking forward to a comedy with Kelsey Grammer (aka Frasier) playing Georges. Kelsey did a fine job, but his co-star, Douglas Hodge stole the show as Albin. Robin de Jesus as Jacob (Albin's Housekeeper) was pretty freaking hillarious too!
La Cage is the same story as the movie Birdcage released in 1996 with Robin Williams as Georges and Nathan Lane as Albin.
The stage production is interestingly produced, well contrived sets and super dance numbers. But the truth is, I continually thought of the movie. I guess I am too old to watch a show like this ;) Either that or Robin Williams has big shoes to fill :)
