‘Work in Progress’ production of Alain Boublil’s Manhattan Parisienne to be staged at The Other Palace

Robert Mackintosh in association with The Other Palace will present ‘Work in Progress’ production of Alain Boublil’s Manhattan Parisienne.

Alain Boublil said today “Robert Mackintosh invited me to visit the theatre one day last year. I was amazed to discover how perfect a setting The Studio was for Manhattan Parisienne. Exactly what I’d dreamed of. I mentioned to Robert how much I’d love to do the show there and gave him a copy of the play. He also gave a copy to Paul Taylor Mills, who liked it too. I am beyond thrilled that things have come together now so that Robert and The Other Palace, along with myself, can present a new development of the show”.

Manhattan Parisienne is a New York story of differences and attraction, of two struggling artists and an unlikely meeting of minds.  She is a French actress/singer.  He is a Manhattan musician who has a history with Paris.  Connected by music, they embark on a surreal journey through New York. Manhattan Parisienne  features excerpts of songs from the classic French and American songbooks by songwriters including Jacques Brel, George and Ira Gershwin, Michel Legrand, Cole Porter and Charles Aznavour.  The play, by Alain Boublil, made its debut at 59E59 theaters in New York. Marie Zamora, who played Eve, is to reprise the role here.

Manhattan Parisienne will have public sharings in The Studio at The Other Palace between Tuesday 10 and Saturday 21 October 2017.
