Event Details


C'EST LA VIE, by Gregg Opelka

A French cabaret show set in 1950s Paris, in a night club with loads of singing dancing, and laughing! Starring BIG EASY AWARD-WINNING and OBIE WINNING actors Jessie Terrebonne and Ann Mahoney.

The Story:

Dominique and Fatiguee are a pair of down-at-the-highheels chanteuses, working at Chez Leplee, a dingy, dead-end cabaret in 1950 Paris. Henri Leplee, the miserly nightclub owner, insists his two songbirds croon only the songs of their archrival, the famous Edith Piaf, night after night. Bored with this routine, copycat existence, Dominique and Fatiguee, along with their faithful (nonspeaking) pianist Jean-Paul-Pierre, scheme to have their boss "conveniently detained" by the police so that they can finally perform their own material—if only for one night. The result is a charming musical sorbet about life, love and annoying accordion players. The 13 songs range from the hilarious "The Accordionist Song" to the infectious "It's a Crazy World, N'est-ce Pas?".
