Tambor locks in ‘La Cage’

Actor to join Fierstein in Broadway revival

Jeffrey Tambor is set to take over for Kelsey Grammer as nightclub manager Georges in the Broadway revival of “La Cage aux Folles,” starting Feb. 15.

Tambor will appear opposite Harvey Fierstein, previously announced to replace Tony winner Douglas Hodge as drag performer Albin.

Grammer and Hodge exit “La Cage” two days before the new leads begin their stints in the show.

Tambor (“Arrested Development”) appeared on Broadway in the 1976 comedy “Sly Fox” and the 2005 revival of “Glengarry Glen Ross,” with additional acting and directing gigs in Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities.

He recently wrapped the film adaptation of children’s book “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” with Jim Carrey and Angela Lansbury, set for release next summer.

Revival of 1983 tuner “La Cage,” with music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (“Hello Dolly,” “Mame”) and book by Fierstein, is directed by Terry Johnson. Sonia Friedman Prods. produces.

“La Cage,” playing at the Longacre Theater, is Tambor’s first musical on Broadway.
