About La Cage aux Folles

La Cage aux Folles box art

After son Laurent (Rémi Laurent) turns up and announces his impending nuptials, transvestite-nightclub owner Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) and his drag-queen star attraction, Albin (Michel Serrault), agree to keep their gay lifestyle under wraps for the benefit of the bride-to-be's ultraconservative parents. When the prospective in-laws come to dinner, Renato and Albin masquerade as a straight, married couple -- with farcical results.
