Mark Suits, VT photographer with our Paris bureau  and I enjoyed going to  Theatre du Gymnase in central Paris to attend the play Miss Carpenter in which Marianne James, co-author with Sébastian Marnier, stars as an 82-year-old former actress who was a star in 1967.  

Miss Carpenter, a heavy set woman, with peroxide blonde hair, hilarious as an actress, is also a great singer and dancer. She won the Oscar for best actress 1967.

Her improvisions and relating the audience made the evening’s performance outstanding.

Three charming men: Bastien Jaquemart, Pablo Villafranca and Romaine Lemire, her “toy boys”, accompany  Miss Carpenter by singing in both French and English, and dancing.

Miss Carpenter delighted her audience with many comical skits. The scenery changing added to the enjoyment.

For those visiting Paris who understand French, this is a comedy that must be seen.
