After twenty years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better-or-worse get a bit of both when Georges' son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the 'family business': Albin and Georges run a transvestite nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the star performer 'Zaza'. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as normal when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results.This is Jerry Herman's best musical yet-happier, more assertive, more buoyant than Hello Dolly or Mame.-New York Post The schmaltziest, most old fashioned major musical since Annie. Highly enjoyable.-The New York Times
