Broadway au Carre to Welcome Lauren Van Kempen & Daniel Mate, 5/14

Broadway au Carré's next show in Paris on May 14th featuring performer Lauren Van Kempen and composer Daniel Mate.

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 communities on both sides of the Atlantic and we have a fantastic line-up of American composers that we're really excited about working with this season, including Will Van Dyke, Daniel Mate, Niko Tsakalakos, Andrew Byrne, Peter Saxe, Scott Burkell and Paul Loesel, among others."

Wednesday, May 14th is the date to remember if you want to come to Broadway au Carré's next show. This month the evening will start with a concert performed by the talented singer and cellist Lauren Van Kempen & special guests Miranda Crispin, Lauren Berkman and Lisandro Nesis. The second part of the evening will include the "American Composers, European Premieres" set and an American musical theatre open mic, both accompanied by Mathieu Serradell on the piano. The featured composer of the month will be Daniel Mate and the set will include several songs from his shows 'The longing and the short of it' and 'Middle school mysteries', performed by Lauren Van Kempen, Sonia Kiang, Lisandro Nesis and Anicet Castel.
