Saw the show yesterday, FABULOUS! Kelsey Grammer was wonderful, as was everyone else! The only problem was our seats. I was very excited to get Row B right Orchestra seats, but I didn't realize that because of the table and chairs "Cabaret Seating" which were in front of us, it would be very difficult to see the show. I would not recommend these seats, better off sitting further back..

Saw this musical and just loved it. I laughed so hard and i also cried, a beautiful mixture of feelings in this musical. I also loved the choreography, there was so much energy and it was FUN, FUN, FUN!!! I would love to see this musical again.

Saw this show (08/20/10) on a whim ... sat up in balcony and had no complaints about our view. I don't think I'd take a child but merely because of the content. The show had me laughing from beginning to end, but also awed me with the dancing. While I'm not a supporter of guy rights, the underlying message gave legitimacy to the tenderness and validity of relationships, regardless of their structure. After the show we were outside of the theater when the cast exited and it was wonderful to see how appreciative and pleased the cast was with their audience. Mr. Hodge and Kelsey Grammer both took the time to sign audographs and pose for pictures. This, of course, added to the splendor of the night. If you want to see a terrific, funny show - you've got to go!!

I have genuinely been more entertained at a high school spring musical - have been to many Broadway shows and have always been a fan of La Cage but walked away disappointed. Mr. Hodges was a true talent who unfortunately had no back up on stage. On top of the unenthusiastic show, having to deal with the seat nazis in the balcony gave a bad taste right off the bat....nasty nasty women who were there to police and perform as little as possible for the people paying their salaries....should they not be trained as ambassadors and not wardens? True stereotypes of "New Yorkers" which do nothing to dispel the myths... A highlight was the drag queen interacting with the audience before the show...

1.5 star rating Not good enough. Kelsey Grammer not there. from SLC, UT


Kelsey Grammer was not there and so was the case of many other; the program seemed like it had confetti in it, that's how many little papers were inside announcing the substitutions. The musical is great, but the acting and singing is just not good enough. What a shame!

1.0 star rating Mary from Tampa, Florida


The show was very good but our view was blocked. I went thru the website provided by the theater to purchase tickets and the price(123) I paid for the ticket was much higher then the price on my ticket(77.50) plus they charged a very high service fee per ticket($28). So I am very disappointed in the tickets. I will never use this website again to purchase tickets.
