Acclaimed illustrator Ken Fallin's drawings of the greatest stars and scenes of the theatrical world are a recurring part of Playbill.com.



This week Fallin captures four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein and six-time Emmy Award nominee Jeffrey Tambor, who joined the Tony Award-winning revival of La Cage aux Folles Feb. 15 in the roles of, respectively, drag star Albin and his partner, club emcee Georges.

La Cage aux Folles, about a gay couple who run a St. Tropez drag club, features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Fierstein, based on the play by Jean Poiret.  The production at the Longacres Theatre is choreographed by Lynne Page and directed by Terry Johnson, who won a 2010 Tony Award for his direction. It won the 2010 Best Revival (Musical) Tony.
