Since the 1950's, generations of actors at Theatre La Huchette have been presenting the same double bill of Ionesco's THE BALD SOPRANO and THE LESSON on a regular schedule, without fail. The stylistic journey you will take when you visit this tiny jewel box on rue de la Huchette will land you somewhere in the visionary imagination of Ionesco's absurdist... More

This charming little theatre was just across the narrow street from out hotel in Rue de la Huchette. Each night there were 3 different short performances but I only had time to go to one, La Cantatrice Chauve. The intimacy of the theatre made one feel that one was actually part of the scene. The performances were in french but... More

Tiny theatre at walking distance from Notre-Dame-de-Paris preseting the Bald Soprano (la Cantatrice chauve) since 1957. You will laugh and be amazed by the actor's talent.

Tiny and very popular place for theater lovers of all ages. Full every night with cosmopolitan french-speakers. Cosy atmosphere. Script is clever and disconcerting, easy to loose onself in these absurd dialogues... Refreshing experience. Staging is excellent. Same programme every night. Great activity to do when visiting paris with teenagers who are learning the language.

Cute little theater with a dead-on production of the Bald Soprano (La Cantatrice Chauve). Even if you don't speak French but simply know the play in English you'll laugh yourself silly. You've probably seen in the other reviews that it's been playing here since 1957 but it hasn't gotten tired at all. My daughter was laughing so loud that the... More

I love this little theater and have gone back more than a dozen times over the years. It's really kind of amazing, especially if you have any appreciation for the absurd. They have been staging the same two Ionesco plays: The Bald Soprano and The Lesson since 1957. While the cast obviously changes over time, virtually nothing else does, so... More

I spent a very pleasant evening at this theater watching two Ionesco plays. The theater is casual, small and cozy, and if you speak french, I highly reccomend going to see a play or two. The area of Saint Michel is also very interesting with a lot to do and see. After the theater, visit the famous jazz bar right... More

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner.
