Now Playing: Molière in Spite of Myself
The Man Who Lived and Died for Theatre Fancy meeting Molière? Comédie Française legend Francis Perrin is the next best thing. Adoré by Parisians and internationals alike, this one-man-show is back by popular demand for the third year in a row! Perrin's fiery show explores the scandalous, secret life of France's Shakespeare, Jean Baptiste Poquelin, a.k.a Molière. The dedicated actor-director evokes his passion for famed playwright in the only way he knows how to: by simply becoming him. Touching, comical, and cultural, this is the play to see if you're looking to know more about theatrical France, have a good laugh, and maybe even shed a tear. The show is playing at Théâtre de la Gaîté-Montparnasse, a lively venue flooded with hip artists and theatre-buffs, in a former Roaring Twenties hotspot made famous by Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
