North Shore Music Theatre Presents. . .
NORTH SHORE MUSIC THEATRE's production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES running now thru October 6, 2013. For tickets and information call (978) 232-7200, visit www.nsmt.org, or visit the box office in person at 62 Dunham Rd., Beverly, Massachusetts.
Before there was the popular movie, The Birdcage, There was the hysterical modern family musical, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES! Winner of multiple Tony© Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, and twice named Best Revival, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES tells the story of Georges (played by Charles Shaughnessy, star of THE NANNY and DAYS OF OUR LIVES), the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner, Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse, Zaza. When Georges' son brings home his fiancee's conservative parents to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test! LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is a tuneful and touching tale of one family's struggle to stay together, stay fabulous and above all else, stay true to themselves! With a glorious score of hummable melodies, written by Jerry Herman of Hello, Dolly!, Mame and Mack & Mabel fame, and a hilarious book by Harvey Fierstein, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is an indisputable musical comedy classic!

Don't forget that Nathaniel's has great "early bird" specials starting at 5 pm daily. Order one full-sized entree and receive complimentary salad or soup appetizer, and chef's choice of dessert, all for the price of the entree, when you order before 5:30 pm. This is a great way to have a lovely dinner and still get to the show on time.
I hope to see you here, or there.
