Even among the staunchly classical theater crowd, there is something undeniably entertaining about a man in a dress. Throw in a gay cabaret owner and his transvestite headliner/life partner—who pretend to be man and wife in order to meet conservative parents of their son’s fiance—and hilarity is bound to ensue. Lakewood Theatre’s production of La Cage aux Folles excels thanks to its supremely talented cast, in particular Joe Theissen as Albert and drag queen extraordinaire Zaza. Theissen’s singing is lovely, but it’s his mannerisms and spot-on delivery that have the audience roaring through each scene. The equally talented chorus dancers, in a hurricane of glitter and marabou, shimmy, flip and high-kick their way through the musical’s up-tempo numbers in what must be the most cardio-intensive acting gig on stage. Have fun guessing which actors are actually women.
