Hodge re-ups with ‘La Cage’

Actor will appear with Grammer in the show until February

Thesp Douglas Hodge has tacked on six months to his contract with Broadway tuner “La Cage aux Folles,” in which he’ll now appear with co-star Kelsey Grammer through Feb. 13.

Both performers rep significant draws for the revival. Hodge nabbed the Tony for his perf, while the box office power of Grammer was illustrated by the thesp’s recent, brief string of absences from the production, which caused the show’s weekly receipts to decline by more than $100,000.

“La Cage,” helmed by Terry Johnson, also picked up the top musical revival Tony. That award, it’s generally agreed, doesn’t have nearly the same commercial impact as the Tony for new musical.

After proving a hit in London, the Broadway transfer of “La Cage” opened April 18 on Broadway and has since seen sales steadily pick up in the wake of critical praise and award attention. Both Hodge and Grammer will depart the show Feb. 13.
