Out of all the Broadways shows running, Jamie agreed to sit front and center for the leg-kicking, contralto-singing, push-up bra-wearing antics of a dozen Cote d’Azur chanteuses who happen to be men. Why did I champion La Cage and beg to go?
Because I love the work of Harvey Fierstein?
Because I have a soft spot for anything set in the South of France?
Because Albin, “Za Za,” is played by Douglas Hodge, a Shakespearean actor who’s lauded as one of the best classical actors of our time?
I went for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I went for Kelsey Grammar and his ex-wife, Camille. I went because I am a shameless tabloid reader and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. There, I said it.
I’m not proud, but I’m honest. Hmmm… what about the Broadway musical version of the Real Housewives?!?
