BWW Feature: Valentine's Day Theatre Treats in France
Valentine's Day in Paris, what could be more romantic? Instead of desperately trying to hang out around the Eiffel Tower tonight (who needs the crowds, not to mention the risk of pick pocketing!), why not take your sweetie to a show this weekend? Here are our suggestions for couples (or groups of friends!) looking for something special this romantic weekend.
1. Marry Me A Little
While this show at the Studio Marigny is all about relationships, be warned: it is no happy romp. A mix of humour and drama, but mostly with beautiful singing, this one will have you holding hands and feeling grateful for the love you share. Their website is in French but the lyrics are still in the original English, and there are French surtitles in case your date happens to be monolingual.
This classic musical is still running in Paris, plus there is a sweet deal for the pairs looking to see the show: buy one ticket and get the other half price from now until March 31st! This show will have you itching to take your date dancing, feeling sensual from all the Fosse choreography, and laughing along with the wonderful supporting characters. Be warned: you will be humming for the rest of the evening!
3. How To Become Parisian in One Hour
If you're new to Paris, you may want to learn how to fit in as you spend this romantic weekend in the love capital of the world. Look no further than this one man show- it will teach you everything you need to know while you and your date erupt in laughter again and again. Sign up for this new type of French class by booking your tickets.
4. Oh My God, She's Parisian!
Another riotous-laugh-inducing show, this time from a female perspective! Learn the other side of the story and complete your French integration. What's a better date night than one where you laugh and laugh together?
5. The Crazy Horse Cabaret
If you want to go really crazy this Valentine's day, visit The Crazy Horse Cabaret! This French-as-can-be show features humour, artistry, songs, tap dancing, and nudity. This show will take you further down the sensual path and could lead to a crazy night. You've been warned!
What is your dream date in Paris? Which of these shows would you pick to see? Enjoy your day, lovebirds!
