Robert Mackintosh in association with The Other Palace are delighted to present the ‘Work in Progress’ production of Alain Boublil’s Manhattan Parisienne. The show will have public sharings in The Studio between Tuesday 10 and Saturday 21 October 2017.
Manhattan Parisienne – 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 theatres, New York and Marie Zamora (Eve) is to reprise the role here.
Alain Boublil is probably best known for his work as a lyricist on the musicals Les Misérables, Miss Saigon and Martin Guerre with Claude-Michel Schönberg and Marguerite with Michel Legrand. He co-wrote the screenplay and co-produced the movie soundtrack of the Golden Globe-winning Les Misérables (Academy-Award nomination, best song). As an author his credits include the plays The Diary of Adam and Eve and Manhattan Parisienne as well as the prize-winning novel, Les Dessous de Soi.
