Manhattan Parisienne is a musical play about the random meeting of a man and a woman from completely different worlds. During an afternoon together through music and their French / American connection they discover that they are very much the same person, battling similar fears, hopes and dreams.
Mr. Boublil is using some of his favorite songs from American and French songbooks to carry or be part of the action of the play as they reflect the different worlds where the two characters come from and later are immersed in.
