Black Tie International:
George Hamilton To Star in "La Cage Aux Folles"

 

Palm Beach’s Favorite Son GEORGE HAMILTON

To Star in LA CAGE AUX FOLLES
 

Tony-Winning Production to Run at
the Kravis Center 

 February 14-19, 2012

 


George Hamilton

 

The producers of the Tony Award® winning LA CAGE AUX FOLLES have announced that Palm Beach’s favorite son George Hamilton will star in the hilarious new production that will run next year at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.  The show was the Great White Way’s biggest hit in 2010 and is coming here as part of the 2011-2012 Kravis On Broadway series.

 

February 14-19, 2012

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES

Starring George Hamilton

The musical comedy tells the story of Georges (George Hamilton) the owner of a glitzy nightclub in lovely Saint-Tropez, and his partner Albin, who moonlights as the glamorous chanteuse Zaza. When Georges' son brings his fiancée's conservative parents home to meet the flashy pair, the bonds of family are put to the test as the feather boas fly! LA CAGE AUX FOLLES is a tuneful and touching tale of one family's struggle to stay together... stay fabulous... and above all else, stay true to themselves! 

George Hamilton is noted for his dashing, sporting, jet-setter image and perpetually bronzed skin tones in commercials, dramatic and comedic film roles and reality shows.
 
George Hamilton with his exceedingly handsome looks and attractive personality, he took a bold chance and moved to Los Angeles in the late 1950s.  Metro Goldwyn Mayer wasted no time putting him in films following some guest appearances on TV. His first film, a lead in Crime & Punishment, USA (1959), was an offbeat, updated adaptation of the Fyodor Dostoevsky novel. He was the recipient of a Golden Globe for "Most Promising Newcomer" as well as being nominated for "Best Foreign Actor" by the British Film Academy (BAFTA). This in turn led to an enviable series of film showcases such as Home from the Hill, All the Fine Young Cannibals, Light in the Piazza and Two Weeks in Another Town

He performed several roles in numerous films but is best known for MGM films in the 1960s' Where the Boys Are, a coming-of-age romantic comedy in which Hamilton played a smooth Ivy League type. Hamilton made two memorable bio-pics: Your Cheatin' Heart in 1964, in which he portrayed the country-western music legend Hank Williams and in 1971, Evel Knievel, the life story of the motorcycle daredevil.
 
As the 1960s began to unfold, George Hamilton started making headlines more as a handsome escort to the rich, the powerful and the beautiful than as an acclaimed actor -- none more so than his 1966 squiring of President Lyndon B. Johnson's daughter Lynda Bird Johnson.  From the 1970s on, George tended to be tux-prone on standard film and TV comedy and drama, whether as a martini-swirling opportunist, villain or lover. A wonderful comeback for him came in the form of the disco-era Dracula spoof Love at First Bite (1979), which he executive-produced. Nominated for a Golden Globe as the campy neck-biter displaced and having to fend off the harsh realities of New York living, he continued on the parody road successfully with Zorro, the Gay Blade (1981) in the very best Mel Brooks tradition.

This renewed popularity led to a one-year stint on "Dynasty" (1981) during the 1985-1986 season and a string of fun, self-mocking commercials, particularly his Ritz Cracker appearance that often spoofed his overly tanned appearance. In 1989 he started a line of skin-care products and a chain of tanning salons.  On the tube he can still pull off a good time, whether playing flamboyant publisher William Randolph Hearst in Rough Riders (1997) (TV), playing the best-looking Santa Claus ever in A Very Cool Christmas (2004) (TV), hosting beauty pageants or making breezy gag appearances. 
 
He has broken through the "reality show" ranks by hosting "The Family" (2003) and participating in the second season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" (2005/I), where his charm and usual impeccable tailoring scored higher than his limberness.

Hamilton was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2009, on his 70th birthday.
 
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES recently made Tony Awards history as the first show to ever win the Tony Award three times for best production.   The classic musical comedy by Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein originally won six Tony Awards in 1984, including Best Musical.  A Broadway revival won two 2005 Tony Awards including the Best Revival of a Musical prize.  The new, freshly reconceived LA CAGE won three 2010 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Director of a Musical (Terry Johnson). 
 
The production is also the winner of three Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding Revival of a Musical and Outstanding Director of a Musical (Terry Johnson) and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Revival of a Musical. 
 
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Harvey Fierstein, based on the play by Jean Poiret. For more information, please visit www.lacage.com.
 
The 2011-2012 Kravis on Broadway series also includes THE ADDAMS FAMILY (November 8-13), HAIR (January 10-15, 2012), COME FLY AWAY (March 13-18) and the 25th anniversary production of LES MISÉRABLES (May 16-26).
