Another play with English language subtitle after the superb play of “The Lonesome West” is soon coming up the “La Cage aux Folles”  – Crazy Women’s cage.  The Átrium-Film and Theater, venue: District, II., 55. Margit Blvd. – Budapest from June  presents the musical “La Cage aux Folles” not only to the Hungarian public but the foreigner audience living, staying throughout Hungary.

The Atrium film and theater is a great advantage to the foreign theater lovers, because they can easily follow the pieces simultaneously on the projector above the stage.  Also a superb idea for the Hungarians to hit two birds with one stone by polishing their English language knowledge.

La Cage aux Folles is a place where everyone can be what they are. Or what they want to be. But what if you cannot show what you truly are? Faith, hope, love, work, family, country, yesterday, today, tomorrow, me, you – and us together. The production is not suitable for children under the age of 15.

Performance dates: June, 30. – 7.30 p.m., July, 1. – 30 p.m.,  July,2. – 7.30 p.m., July, 7.- 7.30 p.m., July, 8. – 7.30 p.m.,  July, 9. – 7.30 p.m.

The length of the play is 3 hours – 15 minutes, including one interval. Tickets are available on the spot at the ticket office, or through online at atriumfilmszinhaz.jegy.hu
