About the Show

A fun, silly musical based on the film of the same name.

Story: Georges is the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction. Things are going swimmingly until Georges' son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée's ultra-conservative parents to meet them.
