The Sacramento Music Circus wraps up its 64th season with one final production, Tony award-winning La Cage Aux Folles.This risqué comedic musical follows the story of a gay couple who run a drag nightclub in the French Riviera. The music served as inspiration for Nathan Lane and the late Robin Williams’ 1996 hit film "The Birdcage." The show runs Aug. 19 to Aug. 24 at the Wells Fargo Pavilion.
