In this contemporary American adaptation of the 1978 outrageous French farce LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, the story centers on the life of a middle-aged, flamboyant gay couple...Armand and Albert...in the eclectic community of South Beach, Florida, who have raised a straight son. The son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing U.S. senator, and wants to bring his fiancee and her ultraconservative parents home to meet his family for the first time. What choice is there but to accept his decision with love! So Armand and Albert must pretend to be very straight by attempting to play out the roles of your typical heterosexual "husband" and "wife"! Easier said than done...

Hollywood at Home presents The Birdcage, Saturday at 9 p.m. on PBS 6.
