History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Mogador
Inspired by the English music hall style in 1919, it was originally named “Palace Theatre” in hopes to appeal to British soldiers during WWI. A few years later, it was renamed Théâtre Mogador after an old city in western Morocco and inaugurated by the then-future American president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. The theatre has been a venue dedicated to musical shows, gaining its fame with performances such as Sergei Diaghilev’s “Ballet Russes”, and operettas such as Mistinguett, one of France's most popular singers throughout the 1920s and 1930s. With its French charm, British playhouse architectural inspiration, and famous international shows, the Théâtre Mogador has been pleasing audiences for over a century.
Théâtre Mogador is right in the middle of the 9th arrondissement, where you can also find many bustling restaurants and bars, or explore the beautiful Parisian Passage des Panoramas.
The Théâtre Mogador is the place to see Broadway-esque renditions, and in the past has welcomed celebrated productions such as Cats, The Lion King, or Mamma Mia! The Théâtre Mogador is now a space that frequently welcomes classic Broadway shows with a French twist, perfect for a Parisian theatre night.
