Le Carre Parisien to Launch BROADWAY AU CARRE, New Parisian Rendez-Vous for Musical Theatre Lovers
Whether you call yourself Parisian or you're just visiting the City of Love, Broadway au Carré is the new hot ticket in Paris to get your American musical theatre fix, along with a good glass of red wine.
Once a month, you can kick off your Wednesday evening at Le Carré Parisien, a typical Parisian café and cave-à-vins, with a cabaret concert by a featured performer, followed by an open mic, where some of the best local artists gather to belt out their favorite Broadway show tunes. Broadway au Carré also features a new musical theatre composer each month, with a set of songs that have never been performed in Europe before. "Our American Composers, European Premieres set," says Lisandro Nesis, Broadway au Carré's artistic director and open mic host, "is the result of a new artistic exchange program we've put together to strengthen the bonds between American composers and French-based musical theatre performers. This new initiative has gathered a lot of support from the musical theatre community. It allows composers to have their music heard in Europe and have more visibility here, as well as give local performers an opportunity to work directly with the featured composers for the preparation of the set. It also gives the French audience a chance to discover new composers and new songs every month. It's a win-win!"
March 5th is the date to remember if you want to come to Broadway au Carré's next show. The concert will be performed by a very special guest: NYC acclaimed cabaret artist and 2014 Nightlife Award winner for Outstanding Male Vocalist and Julie Wilson Award recipient Liam Forde. The featured composer of the month will be Will Van Dyke (Writing Kevin Taylor, Chasing the day) and the open mic will be co-hosted by Lisandro Nesis, Candice Parise (Notre Dame de Paris, Songs for a New World) and with John Florencio on the piano.
Broadway au Carré takes place once a month on Wednesday evenings at Le Carré Parisien located at 1, rue du Général Beuret, 75015 Paris, France. Doors open at 7 pm, showtime at 7:30 pm followed by an Open Mic and the American Composers, European Premieres set at 9 pm. 8€ cover charge includes a drink. Reservations are required at email@example.com. For precise schedule of the season and more info on the cycle, check out Broadway au Carré's Facebook page.
