Jeffrey Tambor exits “La Cage aux Folles”

The producers of the Broadway revival of “La Cage aux Folles” announced Friday evening that Jeffrey Tambor has withdrawn from the show following Thursday’s performance,  only one week after taking over the role of Georges, previously played by Kelsey Grammer .  The musical’s producers released a statement citing Tambor “was experiencing complications from recent hip surgery and the pain and the challenge of performing in a musical eight times a week proved to be too physically demanding. We respect his talent enormously and regretfully accept his withdrawal from the production.”

Tambor’s understudy, Chris Hoch, will take over the role of Georges until a permanent replacement is announced.
