Mistinguett, Queen of the Roaring Twenties

Lovers of musical theatre and its history and anyone else who enjoys a fabulous night out should not miss Mistinguett; Reine des Annees Folles, the spectacular new show at the Casino de Paris. Telling the story of the legendary French singer and actress who was the highest paid female entertainer of her day, this new Albert Cohen production runs until January 4th. Mistinguett, Queen of the Roaring Twenties - CASINO DE PARIS

A fabulous show about a legendary performer

Jeanne Florentine Bourgeois (1875 to 1956) began her singing career on the streets of her home town. She was a flower girl who would serenade her customers with the popular ballads of the day. After receiving some musical training she gained a foothold in the theatre as a stagehand before receiving her opportunity to perform, going on to become a worldwide star. After experimenting with various stage names she first called herself Mistinguett while singing at the Casino de Paris.

In a sense this brings her story full circle as the venue for the new musical show based on Mistinguett’s life is also the Casino de Paris, one of the city’s best-loved performance venues. With music by Jean Pierre Pilot and William Rousseau, choreography by Guillaume Bordier and a stunning performance in the title role by Carmen Maria Vega, this show is already causing a sensation in Paris. Bringing the Roaring Twenties to dazzling life, the show also includes Mistinguett’s signature song, Mon Homme (My Man), which has since gone on to be a much-recorded jazz standard. An evening of great music, scintillating performances and wonderful dancing coupled to a fascinating story awaits your pleasure.
