Cast announced for RAGS The Musical

RAGS The Musical tells the heart-warming and powerful tale of a group of Jewish immigrants as they arrive to start a new life in America.

The cast has been announced for RAGS The Musical with Carolyn Maitland (Groundhog Day, The Old Vic), Dave Willets (Les Miserables, Palace Theatre) and Sam Attwater (EastEnders) leading the cast. Additionally, lyricist Stephen Schwartz appears at Park Theatre for a special one night only event on Sun 19 Jan.

Fresh from Ellis Island, a young mother and her son search for a new life and a sense of home as the 20th century beckons. The streets of Manhattan’s Lower East Side may not be paved with gold, but they echo with the music of opportunity, optimism and hope.

With a ravishing score by the songwriters of Wicked and Annie and the book-writer of Fiddler on the Roof, this is a sweeping saga of America’s immigrant past. Directed by Bronagh Lagan (Little Women, Putting It Together, Promises, Promises), this musical features a score celebrating the multicultural music which was filling the streets of New York in 1910.

“…an unforgettable, unique and vibrant treat..” ★★★★★ Jewish Telegraph

La Cage aux Folles

[The Play]

12 Feb – 21 Mar

By Jean Poiret

New Translation by Simon Callow

Supported by Park Theatre’s Producers


Enter the glittering world of La Cage aux Folles – the play which spawned four blockbuster films and the Tony Award-winning musical. See the original, riotous and heartfelt farce for the first time in the English language.

Nightclub owner Georges and his dazzling drag artiste partner Albin create the most spectacular shows in St. Tropez. But when Georges’ son Laurent announces his engagement to the daughter of a notoriously right-wing politician determined to bring the curtain down on the town’s vibrant nightlife, the real performance begins.

As Georges and Albin entertain their soon-to-be in laws and attempt to conceal their true nature for the sake of their son, how long can the façade last?

Limited preview tickets from £18.50. Book early to secure the best seats.
