“Montand le French Lover” a musical by Hélène Arden will be performed at Lucernaire every Sunday this summer, from 6 p.m. and from June 17 to August 19, as well as on 3 Tuesdays (June 19, 27 and July 3), at 9 p.m.
The show has already been performed in Paris, especially at Théâtre du Marais, under the title “Montand… Edith, Marylin et Simone”. If the content hasn’t change, the title is clearer (the show tells the singer’s love stories) and the best is that it’s available in English: subheads will be screened in English for the English-speaking viewers.
In this show, Hélène Arden plays Lydia, Yves Montand’s sister. Hairdresser in Marseilles, she follows her artist brother’s tumultuous life from her salon. She will later become Edith Piaf’s confidante and Simone Signoret’s close friend.
On stage, accompanied by two musicians, Hélène Arden humorously and emotionally tells and sings Montand, his life and love affairs.
The show is also sub headed in French for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers.
Monuments of French song will be given pride of place this summer at Lucernaire that is also home to “I Love Piaf” about the very Edith Piaf, also available in English.
How about diving into the Montand/Signoret era? “Montand le French Lover” will take you to the heart of this beautiful love story that marked the French cinema.
