Oh, glorious, glamorous, glittery gowns--"La Cage aux Folles" is in our midst. We're talking serious musical comedy here, not the ordinary kind found on summer nights. This is the real thing, the Broadway-bedazzled, sequin-draped extravaganza that has enthralled audiences from coast to coast, from stage to film and back again. You want tender love stories? "La Cage" has two. You like million-dollar costumes and scenery that oozes financial folly?

The Burbank Civic Light Opera is probably local theater's best-kept secret. Well, it's about to stretch its muscles and and make itself better known. Founded 45 years ago, the company has been plying its trade all these years at Burbank's Starlight Bowl as a nonunion venue. That's changing this year as the company embarks on its first season with an Equity contract. This is also the first year that Burbank light opera has a contract with the Musicians Union.
