La Cage aux Folles


Time Out says

Barefoot black butler can't decide whether he's a Pearl Bailey or Paul Robeson. Father of the family has a teenage son by a heterosexual fling, and 'mother' is a drag star. Between them they make John Inman look like Richard Harris. But the son wants to marry the daughter of a morality campaigner, and the in-laws must meet... High camp and farce are acquired tastes, but even those who usually resist should find amusement in the last act's mounting hysteria. Although theatrical, it remains very funny, and uses the overt stereotyping with great sympathy.
