CLAIRE TOW STAGE IN THE C. NEWTON SCHENCK III THEATRE
A new musical about the life and times of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the artist who captured the gaiety, color, and heartbreak of Montmartre, Le Can-Can, and the world of Le Moulin Rouge. Inhabited by the colorful people he painted, this is the story of a great artist who loved a world that never quite loved him back.
Music and Lyrics are by legendary performer Charles Aznavour. The book is by Oscar, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy and The Last Night of Ballyhoo) with English lyrics and musical adaptation by Tony-winner Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years). Tony-winning director/choreographer Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work if You Can Get It and Anything Goes) brings it all to whirling, spinning, sassy life. C’est magnifique!
My Paris is running approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes including one 15 minute intermission.
