After the Picasso Mania and the Warhol Unlimited exhibitions, why not extend your arty stay in Paris to go to the theater? This fall, two theater plays should not be missed: “L’Avare” at the Théâtre Dejazet and “Représailles” at the Théâtre de la Michodière.
L’Avare at the Théâtre Dejazet
L’Avare is a famous play by Molière revisited by director Jean-Louis Martinelli. Great French actor Jacques Weber interprets the lead role. For his character, only the possession counts, the accumulation of money. Greedy, the money is retained, invested, secret, which irremediably puts him in the most comical situations. The actor interprets this miserly with a ferocity and communicative joy.
L’Avare, from October 2nd 2015 to January 2nd 2016.
Tuesday-Saturday at 8am, on Sunday morning at 2:30pm.
Rates: from €25 to €35 the place.

Représailles at the Théâtre de la Michodière
With Représailles, two great French artists share the headline: Marie-Anne Chazel and Michel Sardou. On stage, they interpret a couple on the verge of divorce after Rosalie has discovered the many infidelities of her husband Francis, the night of their daughter’s wedding. Both awkward and in bad faith, Francis will provoke the worst reprisals of his wife! Every Wednesday evening, audio guides are available to the English and Spanish public, so they can follow the play. This innovative experiment was initiated by Paris City Theater.
