We all know by now that the London production of Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman’s La Cage aux Folles is Broadway bound and now the first casting rumours are out. The New York Post says that Kelsey Grammar will play Georges opposite Douglas Hodge’s Albin. (Riedel also says it was almost Mandy Patinkin who opted for Paradise Found instead – thank goodness, I guess.)
BroadwayWorld has an interview with Douglas Hodge. He says the deal with the Georges is still to be done, but he knows who it is and he’s thrilled.
