Yesterday I finally got to attend the one man show I wanted to see for months: How to become a Parisian in one hour? at Théâtre des Nouveautés, in Grands Boulevards area. Plus, the theme of the show is completely compatible with the one of my blog “How to survive in Paris”, I could not dream better! So here is my review of this amazing play, enjoy!
How to become a Parisian in one hour? is like a survival guide in the Parisian jungle, 100% in English, which is perfect for my international followers! Even the French will have no difficulty to understand English. Olivier Giraud, the only star of the show, has no problem to communicate and making himself understood.
What’s the story? Do you know the personal development training? It’s from this perspective that you must consider the show, with a good dose of humor of course! If you are a provincial or a tourist, you will learn in just over an hour to behave like a real (execrable) Parisian under the leadership of the talented and friendly Olivier Giraud. If you are a Parisian, this show will give you the opportunity to see the reflection of your daily life and to laugh heartily about the stereotypes that circulate about Paris and its inhabitants. Shops, restaurants, taxis, metro, nightclub, seduction, sex, search for accommodation and so on, there is a particular attitude to adopt to every single situation!
Olivier Giraud has an incredible stage presence, he knows how to interact with his audience, make people laugh out loud, make imitations both credible and hilarious, sing, dance and make us travel in the City of Lights…he’s a complete artist!
We quickly understand that this is a guy who loves to share. If you have the chance to be in the front row, you may receive a typically French gift from him at the beginning of the show, enjoy! And know that Oliver Giraud invites some spectators to go on stage to put into practice the basics taught. So pay attention to his training! Don’t be afraid, the happy (and courageous) chosen ones will be rewarded generously at the end of the show, I cannot tell you more not to spoil the surprise…
More than 5,000 spectators have already fallen under the spell of this extraordinary one man show and I can tell you that I have been conquered too! It is said that Parisians never smile. Come and debunk this misconception by providing you with a crazy laugh cure! You will have the time of your life, I promise…
I managed to get tickets with seats on the balcony for 15 euros by unit. You can book your tickets on the website http://www.billetreduc.com/69266/evt.htm.
Hope you will have the opportunity to see this awesome show the next time you will be in Paris. Don’t hesitate to give your opinion in the comment field. A bientôt 🙂
