La Cage aux Folles

This revival with Kelsey Grammar is entertaining, but doesn't blow you away.  (Although I think I'm getting maudlin' in my old/middle age: some of the songs did move me.)  Kelsey Grammar does a passable job, although he is so well-known as Frazier Crane that it felt like Frazier was playing the part.  The understudy for the Albin role, Chris Hoch, was great, modulo some microphone trouble during his solo at the end of Act One.  Overall, it's good entertainment, but there is probably better stuff on Broadway if you're a connoisseur.
