"The show must go on at the Comédie-Française" could be the title of this production devised by Serge Bagdassarian and Marina Hands as an ode to the Troupe, to the joy of being reunited in front of an audience previously drawn away by the 2020 pandemic.

Broadway meets cabarets in this dancing, singing occasion; go with the flow of tears and laughter of this festive musical created around the artists that make up the heart of the House.
“We imagined Mais quelle Comédie ! as an extension of La Comédie continue !, the streaming platform we created during lockdown”,Serge Bagdassarian and Marina Hands explain. Beyond our well-supplied Répertoire and our many theatre adventures, we dug from our memories, internal worlds, childhood stories and musings as actors-to-be, desires, disappointments, achievements and crashes. Our rituals, our common zest. As if the Comédie-Française had looked in a mirror through the lens of phones, tablets and laptops. We wanted to go back to that very place. The show is made up of ensemble dancing numbers and duets or solos with songs, extracts or testimonies from our beloved Répertoire. Our goal was to provide an overview of our ties to the audience, to the stage, to this craft, in all its eclectic diversity. This is a complete illustration of our motto, simul et singulis (be together and be ourselves).

This show premiered on June 30, 2021 at the Salle Richelieu.
