This one-man show is captivating, and Olivier masters very well the art of engaging the audience, leaving a very nice memory of this funny satire. A must for tourists in Paris !! The theater is unfortunately old, very small, seating extremely tight, and badly aerated....More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
