Robert Mackintosh in association with The Other
Palace present a ‘Work in Progress’ production of Alain Boublil’s:
A New York story of differences and attraction, of two struggling artists and an
unlikely meeting of minds. She is a French actress/singer. He is a Manhattan
musician who has a history with Paris. Connected by music, they embark on a
surreal journey through New York. The show features excerpts of songs from the
classic French and American songbooks by songwriters including Jacques Brel,
George and Ira Gershwin, Michel Legrand, Cole Porter and Charles Aznavour. The
play, by Alain Boublil, made its debut at 59E59 theaters in New York. Marie
Zamora, who played Eve, is to reprise the role here.
Alain Boublil said “Robert Mackintosh invited me to visit the theatre one day
last year. I was amazed to discover how perfect a setting The Studio was for
Manhattan Parisienne. Exactly what I’d dreamed of. I mentioned to Robert how
much I'd love to do the show there and gave him a copy of the play. He also gave
a copy to Paul Taylor Mills, who liked it too. I am beyond thrilled that things
have come together now so that Robert and The Other Palace, along with myself,
can present a new development of the show”.
The full cast is: Noa Bodner as ‘Adam’s
Mom/Waitress’; Richard Emerson as ‘Teddy/Agent’; Douglas Hansell as
‘Paul/Gareth’; James Lailey as ‘Busker’; Orlando Seale as ‘Gerard’; Gabriel Vick
as ‘Adam’ and Marie Zamora as ‘Eve’.
