Thursday night I took the RER train to the Tramway and on to the Palais des Sports to see this show. The music, dancing, costumes, and staging were fantastic. I loved when the actors (comediens & comediennes) came dancing into the audience but my favorite part was meeting them after the show. They are so gracious and friendly.
After the show when we were waiting by the stage door and photographing some of the actors as they came out, I looked down the street and Merwan was talking to someone and about to walk away. Eli and I went up to him and he was surprised that we knew who he was. How humble. He had been fabulous in Le Roi Soleil and in addition to his voice, we loved the stylish leather coat he wore. When we told him that he just replied "Ah, yes, The coat.", so he must hear that often.
I will do this in two posts with more pictures.
