A truly hidden Parisian treasure, the Théâtre Essaion neighborhood theatre is the result of a clashing of ages. In the 1970, a contemporary theatre troupe established this local playhouse in a medieval vaulted cave, deep in the depths of central Paris. Be transported back in time a you enter this unique venue in the old basement of what was once a luxorious Parisian hotel. With its vaulted stone ceilings, this venue includes 2 intimate stages, and its varied show program includes not only historical pieces but also cabarets, musical theatre, and performances for the youth of the Marais. Explore the backstreets of one of the oldest districts in Paris to discover this hidden underground gem!
