Storyline:

The Birdcage – a drag club on the South Beach. Albert, Starina, the star of the show – one half of a couple with Armand. Val is Armand’s son from a long-ago heterosexual experiment, and has been raised in the Armand and Albert apartment. His intended is Barbara, daughter of the very right wing U.S. senator John Keeley, co-founder of the Coalition for Moral Order. She is bringing her family to visit Val and meet his family (her parents think that Armand is a Greek diplomat). Results – mixup, pretense, and farce.
