Christopher Sieber leaves “Chicago” to take over for Jeffrey Tambor in “La Cage Aux Folles”

When it was announced Jeffrey Tambor would leave La Cage Aux Folles due to medical issues, understudy Chris Hoch was tapped to fill in as Georges until a permanent replacement could be found. That person will be Christopher Sieber who will leave his role as Billy Flynn in Chicago, to take over the role from Hoch.

Sieber’s Broadway debut was in the musical Triumph of Love with Betty Buckley and F. Murray Abraham. He has appeared as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Trevor Graydon in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Billy Flynn in Chicago, and as Rapunzel’s Prince and alternate for the role of the Wolf in Into the Woods. Most recently, Sieber played the role of Lord Farquaad in Shrek the Musical, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical, and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance.

Four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein will continue in his role as Albin, playing opposite Sieber as Georges. A date for Sieber stepping into the role has yet to be announced.
