Le Théâtre du Rond-Point is a public theater which lies in the middle of the Eight district, at the angle of the Avenue du Président Roosevelt and avenue des Champs-Elysées. And as it is a public theater, the prices of the seats are very cheap compared to the private theaters like the Théâtre Marigny.
It is a perfect spot to go and see a play if you have walked the Champs-Elysees all day long and tried the ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde (normally, when it is Christmas time), where the famous obelisk lies that Napoleon brought back from Egypt.
The Director of this theater is a french writer and humorist, Jean-Michel Ribes, who started his career on French television, more than 25 years ago. His style is a bit like Monty Python, and in general, this theater presents a really original program, which tends to honor the french or foreign authors specialized in “nonsense” or absurd.
I hope you’ll enjoy assisting at a performance.
