A temporary theatre can a t present be found in Paris. It follows the Elizabethan, Shakespeare model, best known for the Globe Theatre in London. This one is smaller, is travelling, assembled during some four or five days. For the moment you can find it close to the Pont Marie, opposite to Ile Saint Louis, where it will remain until end June. “La Tour Vagabonde” is clearly the right name for this little theatre, which can seat some 250 people. The performers belong to the theatre company “Les Milles Chandelles”.
Of course Shakespeare is played. “Romeo and Juliet” is running – and has got excellent critics. “As You Like It” is programmed as well as a play for younger people, called “Bla, bla, bla”. I was lucky to slip in and watch some rehearsals.
