George Senior in Broadway

"Coo-coo Kah Cha !"

Here we go for some good news about one of the funniest Bluth family members. George Senior aka Jeffrey Tambor is going to act in a play called "La Cage aux Folles".
In France, where I live, it's a famous and funny play. It's also a great movie.
Seeing Jeffrey Tambor in this kind of play is great, I hope some of us will go to see him.

You can find more details in this L.A Times article :

Jeffrey Tambor may not be a household name, but his face is instantly recognizable thanks to his Emmy-nominated performances in the cult TV series "Arrested Development" and "The Larry Sanders Show." In February, Tambor will be leaving the world of TV temporarily behind to return to Broadway in the current revival of "La Cage aux Folles."

Tambor will be replacing another TV veteran, Kelsey Grammer, in the role of Georges. Tambor is set to take over the role Feb. 15, and will star opposite Harvey Fierstein, who is replacing Tony-winner Douglas Hodge in the part of Albin. "La Cage," at the Longacre Theatre, won the award for best revival at this year's Tonys and was earlier produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London.

Fierstein wrote the book for "La Cage" and will be performing in the musical for the first time. "La Cage" had its Broadway debut in 1983, winning the Tony for new musical. The current revival opened in New York in April.

Tambor has previously appeared on Broadway in Larry Gelbart's"Sly Fox" in 1976 and a revival of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" in 2005. The actor has received six Emmy nominations for supporting actor in a comedy for "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Arrested Development."

His recent film work includes "The Hangover" and the new Disney animated film "Tangled."

We wish you the best George !
