Mad About Paris, Much more than a guide
You don’t know who the Sea Girls are? Here we go: they are four. Four girls, four true Parisiennes who, one day, read my lips, will fill the theatres of London, Las Vegas and La Roche-sur-Yon. At the moment they are just filling the Nouvelle Eve, a beautiful scene close to Pigalle and the Moulin Rouge, dating from the end of the 19th century with a hall all in pink. “Les Sea Grils fêtent la fin du monde” is the title of their show.
The Sea Girls pretend to know 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 are singing and dancing and somehow revisiting 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 - Until 16th of April 2011 Théâtre de la Nouvelle Eve 25, rue Pierre Fontaine 75009 Paris
