WSU alum and Hilberry actor Jeffrey Tambor will be joining the cast of La Cage aux Folles on Broadway.

“With Kelsey Grammer preparing to depart the Broadway production of “La Cage aux Folles” in February, is there another television star who can bring to the role of Georges an equal level of erudition and dignity that’s begging to be chipped away? Hey now! It turns out there is.

Jeffrey Tambor, who played the self-absorbed sidekick Hank Kingsley on “The Larry Sanders Show” and, after that, the fatuous Bluth family patriarch on “Arrested Development,” will take over the part of Georges beginning Feb. 15, press representatives for “La Cage aux Folles” said on Wednesday. Harvey Fierstein, the book writer of “La Cage,” was previously announced to take over the role of Albin from Douglas Hodge on that same date.

“This is like my bar mitzvah, plus,” an excited Mr. Tambor said Wednesday in a telephone interview. “I’ve been going around humming all day, apparently.”
