Mad About Paris, Much more than a guide

Nicolas Sarkozy, Barak Obama and the Dalai Lama, they all love the Sea Girls. You don’t believe me? Ok, ok. I’m kidding. I somehow got a bit infected tonight. No wonder. I’ve just seen four splendid girls celebrating the end of the world.
The Sea Girls pretend to have known each other since they sat on the potty together. Today, they are the most funny, audacious and indecent group of girls I know. Four girls, eight legs and a lot of fun. Gorgeous legs, my God, and a hell lot of fun.
There is this tall, American style girl with arms as long as those of some Indian deity. There is Prunella, sounds like Disney, but it’s actually her real name. There is the other one with the interesting nose and there is Lilli, finally: nothing in her head, all in her legs and hips. I do love Lilli, she seems to come right out of the good old commedia dell’arte, a kind of Zerbinetta, a rogue Cinderella.
Together, they sing and dance and somehow revisit the old music hall, transforming it into something fresh, bold and contemporary. It’s a real show.
You don’t understand French? Well, in this case you will miss a lot of jokes and their strange relationship with rabbits and men. But don’t worry. It’ll be fun still. And so Parisian! In fact, more Parisian than the other girls from the Moulin Rouge. Only the legs are pretty similar.Les Sea Girls fêtent la fin du monde - 15, 16, 17 of March and last shows on 22, 23 and 24 of March 2012 Théâtre de la Nouvelle Eve 25, rue Pierre Fontaine 75009 Paris
