Wednesday Wow: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES in the Press

May 30, 2012

Kristen Miranda of WBTV interviews Christopher Sieber (left) and George Hamilton.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES opened last night in the Belk Theater to a standing ovation, partly because of the show’s two talented leading men: George Hamilton (Georges) and Christopher Sieber (Albin).  While Hamilton needs no introduction, Charlotte theater fans may remember Sieber from last year’s “Celebrity Autobiography” or from his Tony nominated role as Lord Farquuad in Shrek The Musical.

The Charlotte Observer‘s Larry Toppman praised the touring production as “broader, bawdier and brawnier than the ’80s original.”  In fact, Toppman was so smitten with Hamilton, he complimented the tanned crooner saying he “exudes unruffled charm” in his role as Georges.  CLICK HERE to read the full review.

Larry Toppman wasn’t the only one charmed by Hamilton.

George Hamilton addressed local media at last night’s pre-show reception.

Before the show arrived in the Belk Theater, both Hamilton and Sieber did interviews with print media.But the LA CAGE AUX FOLLES press doesn’t stop, or start, there.
