“The Golden Cage” is an award-winning new mythical musical about Boris – half-human / half-bird – who’s spent his life on a quest to find the ultimate symbol of security: the legendary Golden Cage. Finally he finds it – and it’s glorious! Except for one little thing: Alphea, a grumpy, melodramatic Diva, is trapped inside, and swears the cage is made of cement and iron.
