    Sidehow Bob is known for his vocal range, and homicidal tendencies.

    From television's favorite psychiatrist to an big-haired sociopath to the gay owner of a French Riviera nightclub: Kelsey Grammer is set to star on Broadway in "La Cage aux Folles" next spring.

    Producer Sonia Friedman says a revival of the 1983 Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein musical will open April 18 at the Longacre Theatre.

    It's based on the current hit London production and will feature that show's British star, Douglas Hodge. The director is Terry Johnson.

    "La Cage" concerns the relationship between the club owner, portrayed by Grammer, and its drag star, the role played by Hodge.

    Grammer, 54, played Dr. Frasier Crane on the NBC comedy series "Frasier" for 11 seasons, and made psychopathic clowns funny again in a recurring role as the animated Sideshow Bob on the "Simpsons."
