In this stripping show on the stage of Théâtre Michel, you'll be miles away from preconceived ideas. The stripping off of clothes or effeuillage in French, is seen in a comic light, while adhering to precise codes. Taken in the American sense of the term, burlesque is a form of entertainment combining naughty cabaret and light comedy, which had its heyday at the end of the 19th century in Parisian cabarets, then in the United States until the 1960s with the reign of the pin-up. Brought back into fashion in the 90s under the name of new burlesque, it is now a plural and feminist art form with aesthetic, comic and always slightly committed acts.


Make yourself comfortable, the Cabaret Burlesqueis about to start. You're in for an eyeful.

History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Michel

Don't be fooled by the venue's unimposing exterior, the delightful Italian style auditorium of the Théâtre Michel is sure to seduce at first sight! Built in the early 20th century, the theatre fell victim to the flood that struck Paris in 1910 just a few years after opening, leaving the first level completely submerged. But the Théâtre Michel was not to be stopped, and soon overcame its early troubles to become a celebrated name in the international arts scene.


This charming theatre, complete with pediments resembling Greek temples, has been managed over recent decades by Marc Camoletti. According to the Guinness Book of Records, Camoletti's brilliant comedy of errors, Boeing Boeing, is the most performed French play in the world, counting over 18,000 performances in more than 20 countries, and was made famous on screen by Tony Curtis in the 1960s. Not such a minor theatre after all!


Fun fact

The Théâtre Michel was the very first venue to hold a subtitled performance with Theatre in Paris back in 2014!
