PARIS! THE SHOW
This spectacular evening is a vibrant tribute to the greatest French songs of the post-war years, and exports the charm and the essence of PARIS for the whole world to enjoy.

Françoise, a young girl who dreams of becoming a famous artist in PARIS, arrives in Montmartre. On her journey, she’ll cross paths with EDITH PIAF, and will become her friend, her confidante, and her soul mate.
Françoise will find love in the person of Charles, a young singer living in Pigalle. A romance will blossom between them in a city where love conquers all !
