Variety reports that the Tony-winning musical La Cage aux Folles is headed back to Broadway for the 2004-2005 season. Based on the hit 1978 French comedy about a club owner and his transvestite lover meeting their straitlaced future in-laws, the show boasts a libretto by Harvey Fierstein and songs by Jerry Herman. The revival will be directed by Jerry Zaks, with choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray). No announcements yet about casting, although some speculation sees the lead roles going to Producers costars Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. The original run of the musical opened in 1983 and ran for 1,761 performances before closing in 1987. Other revivals slated for next season include West Side Story, Camelot, The Pajama Game, The Wiz, and Dreamgirls.
