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”. 

Manhattan Parisienne is 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. 

Manhattan Parisienne 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.
