A confrontation of two New York worlds: the corruption of the New York gangsters, and the pure souls of the young Salvation Army missionaries. The heart of Manhattan vibrates throughout this musically charged performance, New York City is both exhillarating and romantic, as well as dangerous!

 

Résumé

Based on a story by the American writer Damon Runyon, the famous musical Guys and Dolls tells the tale of a New York hustler, Sky Masterson, who sets out to seduce a prim and proper Salvation Army volunteer, the lovely Sarah Brown. Will the 'bad guy' show his true heart and win over the 'doll' of the Salvation Army orchestra?

 

Catchy swing tunes and smooth dance moves serve to highlight social problems in 1950s New York in this musical, which has played to full houses ever since its first staging on Broadway. The musical became an international hit after it was adapted into a film in 1955, with Frank Sinatra in the lead role. This Broadway hit has been performed thousands of times and is the winner of 5 Tony Awards. See Guys and Dolls for yourself in one of the most prestigious venues in Paris!

 

This show is being performed for the first time in France, complete with a live orchestra, entirely in English (French subtitles included).

Avis

A very good musical

 

The troupe was wonderful, 25 dancers, actors, singers, & a live orchestra. The same spirit as the musicals performed at the Théâtre du Chatelet, as it's the same director. Bravo to all!

Truly splendid!

Romantic comedy and musical, no matter what you call it we had a great time. Funny with the talented artists, as good actors as they are dancers & singers, and not forgetting the choreography, like West Side Story and Dirty Dancing combined!

Théâtre Marigny

Carré Marigny, 75008 Paris

Au milieu des années 1800, le square Marigny qui bordait les Champs-Élysées était une simple salle relativement modeste, proposant toutes sortes d’attractions et de curiosités circassiennes. Après avoir changé de mains et de noms un certain nombre de fois, de « Bouffes d’été » au « Théâtre Deburau » et au « Marigny Bergères », la scène au charme désuet fut détruite en 1880 pour laisser la place à un théâtre grandiose, conçu par le non moins célèbre Charles Garnier, également à l’origine de l’Opéra Garnier. Depuis les années 1950, sous la direction de Simone Volterra, le Théâtre Marigny est devenu l’un des lieux les plus courus de la capitale, au moment précis de l’explosion culturelle post-Seconde Guerre mondiale. De ses débuts modestes, le théâtre s’est transformé en profondeur pour devenir l’un des théâtres les plus prestigieux de tout Paris, une salle luxueuse à voir et où il est bon d’être vu. En 1954, un second théâtre, plus petit, fut ajouté au lieu, pour compléter le programme avec des créations plus intimistes.

 

Composé de deux théâtres, un petit et un grand, le Théâtre Marigny est l’une des rares salles parisiennes à avoir accueilli une comédie musicale historique de Broadway, tandis que la petite salle accueille de petites créations. De 2013 à 2018, le Théâtre Marigny est resté fermé pour rénovation et n’a réouvert ses portes que récemment, plus beau que jamais. Ce théâtre fabuleux est l’une des adresses préférées des amateurs de théâtre parisiens. Le lieu parfait pour voir une splendide comédie musicale dans un magnifique décor et entouré de la crème parisienne.

FAQ

Where will I be seated?

There are three seating categories available. The theatre is an English style auditorium, which means that all seats face the stage in a horseshoe shape. Seats will be automatically allocated by the theatre in the section corresponding to your desired category.

How to I get to the theatre?

The theatre is accessible by the metro stations Franklin Roosevent (Line 9) and Champs-Elysées Clemenceau (Lines 1 & 13). Our hotline can be reached in case of difficulty finding the theatre weekdays from 10 am to 7pm Paris time. For details, we invite you to consult the map above.

What do I do when I get to the theatre?

We invite you to arrive 15 minutes before the beginning of the show, and present your voucher at the front desk. The theatre's English-speaking staff members will guide you to your seats.

Can I purchase a show programme?

Tickets for Guys and Dolls do not include a programme. A programme in French is available for purchase at the theatre.

How long does the show last?

The show lasts two hours and thirty minutes with one intermission.

Is the show for travelers or French people?

Both! This production of Guys and Dolls has many new aspects, yet keeps all the charm of the famous American musical, it’s the perfect choice for a famous American musical in one of France’s most iconic venues. Performed entirely in English, French subtitles are provided to ensure local audience members can understand as well.

Is tipping customary?

Tips are not mandatory in Parisian theatres. However, ushers will usually expect a small tip of between 2€ and 5€, which you can give them when they've shown you to your seat. Fun fact: the French word for “tip” is “pourboire,” which literally translates to “to have a drink.”
