Shakespeare at Les Gemeaux in Paris
If you want to catch Declan Donnellan’s new production of Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline” with Britain’s Olivier-winning company Cheek By Jowl before it migrates to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in May, you can see it in Paris from March 7 through March 25, 2007 at Les Gemeaux.
The theatre is located in Sceaux, a suburb just south of Paris easily accessible by public transportation. To get there, take the RER B from Denfert Rochereau (direction Robinson, Saint-Remy or Massy Palaiseau) and get off at Bourg-La-Reine.
You can reserve tickets at BilletRédec.com, a fantastic resource for discounts on all sorts of cultural events from museums to the circus, especially good for last minute cultural purchases.
While we’re in a tip-dispensing mood, Cheapo theatre buffs can also check out half-price offerings for same-day performances at Le Kiosque Theatre. There’s a Kiosque at La Madeleine and another at Montparnasse by the main railway station. The theatres are open from noon until 8 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
