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 Théâtre Libre
History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Libre
Le Théâtre Libre, previously known as Le Comédia, was built in just six months by the architect Charles Duval in 1858. It experienced an unsteady start and soon declared bankruptcy. However, in 1862 it was transformed into the Eldorado, and became the most famous concert cafe in Paris. It retained its popularity for over 60 years, undergoing various phases of renovations during which its glamorous spirit was reflected through the addition of a metallic canopy entryway.
This renowned venue played an important role in shaping the cultural prowess of the Roaring Twenties, and has hosted many stars, including Mistinguett and Maurice Chevalier, both French actor-singers. In 1932 it was converted into a large cinema, returning to its original role as a theater in 1971. Since this time, the stage has been used for musical performances of all kinds. In recent years, it began to feature many other types of theatrical performances to the great delight of the Parisian public.
