History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel
Despite taking its name from the French for the ‘Eiffel Tower Theatre’, please note that the Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel is not located on the Eiffel Tower! However, it is very easy to find (without climbing its 1,665 steps) at 4 Square Rapp in the very chic and elegant Gros-Caillou district, a gem of Paris’ 7th arrondissement. Located in a charming cul-de-sac, just a stone's throw from the Champ-de-Mars, it is inarguably dominated by the magnificent and captivating ‘Tour Eiffel’ - otherwise known as Paris’ ‘Iron Lady’, or of course the Eiffel Tower. The Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel was built between 1912 and 1915 in an Art Nouveau style, with a traditional Italian configuration to allow for a beautiful theatre experience, from its visual to its auditory assets. Its cream and purple hall has been the performance venue of some of the finest in international pianists and musicians.
Today, a new management aims to bring this beautiful building back to the forefront of the glittering Parisian theatre scene by presenting an array of very different shows, ranging from stand-up to mentalism to classical theatre, not forgetting universally beloved musical performances. A charming marriage between contemporary venues and classic French culture awaits beyond the Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel’s inviting doors!
