My mother, daughter and I attended the show and thoroughly enjoyed it. The venue was classy and comfortable and the show thoroughly entertaining. I wanted to thank the management here for being so accommodating when we had an issue due to the Air France strike. When visiting Paris again with my husband we will most definitely come back here !!! Thanks again!!
