Theatre Review: La Cage Aux Folles at Dundalk Community Theatre



Edward J. Peters as Albin, Jeff Burch as Georges, and Randy Dunkle as Jean-Michael
Ce qu’est un grand spectacle A kaleidoscope of lovable characters in a town on the French Riviera, zany humor, high camp, splashy costumes, chromatic sets, superb music, stellar performances, and a good dose of family values place a big exclamation point on the conclusion of Dundalk Community Theatre’s 40th season with the entertaining production of La Cage Aux Folles.    
Veteran Director Tom Colonna successfully leads his energetic troupe through seamless set and costume changes and well-delivered songs and comedy to provide non-stop joy.  On the evening this particular performance was reviewed, however, there were mic issues including unevenness in the volume among the ensemble and a feedback episode during the second act.  Hopefully, the sound problems will be worked out in subsequent presentations, but that flaw did not detract from the overall quality of the show and the delight theatergoers will soak in like the warm Saint-Tropaz sunshine—the setting for the musical.  #hocoarts
