The box office experience here was the worst I've ever had. The gentleman who sold us the tickets was visibly frustrated by our limited French and literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me when I tried to communicate about where the seats were located. The day...More

This was a great musical production presented in a temporary venue built especially for use while the old theatre is being renovated. I did not realize this....and so we had a mad taxi ride dash to the correct venue 1/2 hour before curtain. We made...More

Great production in a totally unsuitable venue. First, in midwinter there's no heating! In -2C we were all freezing, huddled in blankets. The building has a glass roof and thus does not get dark, so if you go for the matinee as we did, you...More

Good alternative to classic Parisian touristic attractions and perfect opportunity to see the city from inside. The theatre itself is a classic beauty.

Beautiful old-school theatre in the heart of Paris. Some seats may be blocked by the columns so pay close attention when booking. Also, the higher you get, the closer the seats are to one another and to the row in front, but you in such...More

Went to she my friend starring in 42th street in this grand theatre in the heart of beautiful Paris. The musical numbers were breathtaking. The building was lovely, decorated with gold and a wonderful chandelier and the staff very pleasant

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
