The holidays are fast approaching and it is time to find present ideas for our loved ones. How about a ticket to one of the acclaimed musicals currently playing in Paris? Mistinguett and Dirty Dancing are on and they are all the rage in Paris this season.
Mistinguett, Reine des Années Folles (Mistinguett, Queen of the Roaring Twenties) at the Casino de Paris
Since September 18, Albert Cohen’s new show has been a raging success. After le Roi Soleil, les Amants de la Bastille and Mozart l’Opéra Rock, he takes us through the roaring twenties, 10 years of freedom, insolence and partying, and retraces the history of the first Music Hall. Mistinguett, the first to wear feathers or come down a huge flight of stairs, is the star of the show.
Mistinguett, Reine des Années folles, showing until January 18, 2015.
