"A straw hat from Italy": a vaudeville - cartoon!

  • Eugène Labiche's play revisits a totally absurd and very funny story.
  • You'll discover how Fadinard, a young Parisian, sets off on a crazy race through Paris on his wedding day...
  • Before getting married, Fadinard has a nightmare about a fantastic quest that revolves around an Italian straw hat eaten by his horse.
  • As always with Labiche, the plot twists and turns in a whirlwind of misunderstandings, with everything unfolding in ways you'd never expect!
  • Emmanuel Besnault and Benoît Gruel take us into an absolutely brilliant atmosphere where laughter is constant.
  • It's a highly original show, with acting worthy of vaudeville.

Star Star Star Star Star - Good
Written by MP Reymond, 05-03-2024

We wanted to take our 9-year-old daughter to see a play, in a small venue and not too late... The play seemed funny and accessible. Despite a few long stretches, the zany staging kept our daughter awake. The actors were top-notch and worked hard, sometimes too hard (?); I must admit that I was a little skeptical at times, not necessarily the play I was expecting to see, but a nice moment.

A wacky, modern and funny production, performed by excellent actors. Good humor guaranteed. Le lucernaire is a small, intimate theater. Very easy to book. We recommend it!
