Tennessee Williams au Mois Molière


When I went to run a few errands yesterday, I happened upon a stage. Remember it's Molière Month? Well, this was amateur theatre near the covered market, a loose adaptation of Tennessee Williams' works, called "sur la route de Tennessee", i.e. on the road to Tennessee. It was actually quite good stuff, by l'Atelier Théâtre des Deux Rives.

En allant faire quelques courses hier dans la chaleur écrasante, voici que je découvre une scène de théâtre amateur aux Halles Notre-Dame. Cette adaptation de textes de Tennessee Williams par l'Atelier Théâtre des Deux Rives m'a permis de passer un moment agréable, quoique chaud.

How fun to just come across something like this! The man in the second photo looks kind of Johnny Deppish - that would be enough to make me stop :)

Did someone say Johnny Depp? This is what I call "street theatre".

«Louis» remembers that Molière was a friend of Nicolas Fouquet and performed his plays at Fouquet's Vaux-le-Vicomte, including on the night Louis XIV had Fouquet arrested.

Love the experience you had and what fun captures. I went to the theater last night--no spontaneity on my part, but plenty on the part of the actors.

I'm not brave enough to take photos of people; these are beautiful!

du Molière américain ;o) surement un bon moment, mais c'est vrai que c'est plus sympa de voir ça dans un théâtre avec la climatisation ;o)

It must have been fun to watch, and the price was right, so who cares how good it was or wasn't.

It seems that they enjoy what they do... :)
God bless you!

This kind of thing is so rare here! What great fun. I would think, though, the actors would have to be on top of their game to do theater in the open air.

I'm glad it was good theatre. It looks fun. Nice spot of orange there!

formidable cette situation, beaucoup de personne; non pas les moyens d'aller au théâtre ou Pourquoi personne ne s'intéresse au théâtre et pourtant c'est très enrichissant ? Les photos nous offre une belle scène.
