Highlights: Cabaret Canaille

Glamor, humor, and glitter… If you dare to go through the doors of Cabaret Canaille, you will enter a world of glamour and burlesque strippers. You’ll be transported back in time, from the ’20s to the ’40s, the golden age of American Burlesque and the famous pin-ups.


In French, the word effeuillage denotes the action of removing flower petals, but it also refers to the action of removing one’s clothes in a suggestive, flirty, and humorous manner. In this way, the term effeuillage has a more poetic connotation than its English synonym “strip tease”.


The Cabaret Canaille show offered by the Theâtre Michel plays on these dual meanings with a lot of creativity and will show you strippers whose routines play with their enchanting charms. Ooh la la! C’est Paris!

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!
