La Cage Revival

Kelsey Grammer's recent support of a right wing "tea bagging" cable station has some people wondering  his feelings about LGBT rights given that he is playing one of the leads in the very, very gay La Cage revival.  Since his advertising the cable channel, Grammer has come out in favor of same-sex marriage.  (Is this just good PR or sincere?)  In any case, here's a montage of scenes form the musical.  I saw the original when it was previewing in Boston before it went to Broadway almost 30 years ago.  I remember a much bigger chorus of dancers than you see here, but that's par for the course given the cost of mounting productions these days.  Grammer has received very good notices for his performance, but in these scenes, at least, I think he was far more believably gay in Frasier (even though he was supposed to be straight).
