Nat Chandler (left) is delighted to reprise his role of Georges in La Cage aux Folles at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center.New York Times theatre critic D.J.R. Bruckner wrote, "Nat Chandler is a find...he displays rich comic gifts and he can use his fine operatic voice to express any emotion he wants to." Well known to theatre and concert audiences around the country, on Broadway, Nat was seen in the title role of Sir Percival Blakeney in the Tony-nominated musical, The Scarlet Pimpernel
