As its name may suggest, Mistinguett follows the story of the world famous singer and dancer, Mistinguett. Born as Jeanne Florentine Bourgeois, Mistinguett became the most highly paid female performer in the world, gracing prestigious venues such as the Moulin Rouge, the Folies Bergère, and the Eldorado with her presence. Thirty actors on stage tell the story of the creation of the first music-hall show, a phenomenon which inspired Broadway. 'Mistinguett the Musical' invites its audience to share in the extraordinary adventure that Mistinguett and her fellow actors experience on stage.
Le Comedia was built in 1858, and experienced an unsteady start. However, in 1862 it was transformed into the Eldorado, the most famous café-concert in Paris. It played an important role in shaping the cultural prowess of 'Les Années Folles' and has hosted various stars including the real Mistinguett, and Maurice Chevalier. In 2000 it was named Le Comedia.

The musical: Mistinguett follows the story of the world famous singer and dancer, Jeanne Florentine Bourgeois, better known as Mistinguett. She became the most highly paid female performer in the world, gracing prestigious venues such as the Moulin Rouge, the Folies Bergère, and the Eldorado with her presence. In order to fully appreciate 'Mistinguett the Musical', it is important to understand the provenance of ‘Les Années Folles.’ Dazzling, full of talent, and daring, the 1920s represent an exceptional page in French cultural history. To describe the effervescence which encapsulated the capital in the 1920s, only the word ‘folie’, or ‘madness’, seems appropriate. ‘Les Années Folles’ are a digression into liberty, a magical moment between two world wars, only 10 short years, but 10 years of incredible intensity. It is no surprise that the show uses music reminiscent of the 1920s, delivering the unrestricted energy present in the original compositions. It utilises intense show music, which has the ability to be simultaneously emotional and ‘swing.’ This allows the audience to experience the ambience of the shows of the 1920s, and to feel a newfound liberty.
