While it’s relatively the big news is that there are new principles in Broadway’s current revival of La Cage aux Folles, including Harvey Fierstein, whose tweets leading up to his first performance were majorly entertaining, as Albin, it’s perhaps even bigger news that the show’s other leading man, Jeffrey Tambor, withdrew from the production this week.

The official line, as reported on Playbill, is that Tambor is having complications from a recent surgery, but other reports have appeared citing vocal discomfort (this one was in The New York Post) and stage fright because of this being Tambor’s musical debut (a report from “insiders” on various forums, blogs and and gossip sites).

In the meantime, we wait to see who the new Georges will be. Chris Hoch, the understudy, is playing the role at present.

    So… Jeffrey Tambor is leaving La Cage after one week. Um…?

    George Hamilton was just announced as Georges for the National Tour. I have to say, I think he’s a good choice. Much better than Tambor. I wonder who will tour as Albin. I feel like it also needs to be a big name – anyone think Harvey will go on tour for a while since the show is closing early?
