LAS VEGAS (CBS) – An Evening At La Cage, the world-famous Las Vegas extravaganza, will bring its glitz and glamour to the Four Queens Hotel & Casino starting July 13. The show has been on hiatus from Vegas since it closed at the Riviera two years ago and is now refreshed and ready to take its place again as the premier show of its kind.
An Evening At La Cage features the most amazing female impersonators, celebrity look-alikes and tribute artists alive today in a top-notch performance of nonstop music, dance and comedy.
Produced by Starr Pro Productions, with a special licensing agreement with longtime producer Norbert Aleman, La Cage will star Jimmy Emerson, the internationally known comedian and impressionist who was the comedy lead and backup host for the show’s previous Las Vegas incarnation. He is famed for outrageous characters that bring the house down, including his wicked Wynonna Judd and the queen of country-western trailer-trash Tammy Spraynette.
Emerson has appeared in movies and TV and around the world in his own shows as an actor, singer and dancer in addition to being a comedian and impersonator in the international casts of An Evening at La Cage, including the highly acclaimed London production.
The stunning impersonations in the show run the gamut from Barbra Streisand to Lady Gaga, with a host of other exquisite stars, including Carrie Underwood, Madonna, Reba McEntire, Jennifer Lopez and Michael Jackson. Cast members are Brent Allen, Ryan Zink, Andrew Ryan, Carlos Rodriguez, Alondro Garibay and Lane Lassiter.
Rounding out the cast are the extraordinary La Cage dancers, complete with eye-popping costumes that showcase astounding configurations of feathers and rhinestones adorning brilliant headdresses.
An Evening at La Cage started in 1982 in Hollywood after the huge success of the Broadway musical La Cage aux Folles. Producer Norbert Aleman teamed up with original creator Lou Paciocco to bring the show to Las Vegas in 1985 where it immediately captivated audiences. Other companies of the show have been seen in Atlantic City, Japan, Aruba, Great Britain, Brazil and Canada.
