  • The Rond point Theatre is very well placed, just at the Rond point of the Champs Elysées at the corner of Franklin Roosevelt Avenue. This building dates from 1857 when the architect Gabriel Davioud built the "Panorama of the Champs Elysées" in the shape of a rotunde to valorize the "exploits Warriors of Napoleon III" after the fall of the Empire and only in 1893, it becomes "the Palace of the ice" as skating rink until 1970. Emptied and arranged in 1981, the building becomes the "Théâtre du Rond point" with the famous duettists "Jean Louis Barrault and Madeleine Renaud" at its head. In 1991, the Ministry of culture commissioned the architect Jean Michel Wilmotte to develop and decorate the premises, which we see today. The theatre is then endowed with a restaurant, entrance hall, bookshop, exhibition hall. The theatre is also at this time "the House of cultures of the world", a vast programme!! In 1995, Marcel Maréchal took over the direction of the theatre, which presented contemporary works. Since 2002, it is Jean Michel Ribes who is the Director, with a programming essentially of creations of living authors. The Director is appointed jointly by the Ministry of culture and the City Council of Paris, which provide grants of approximately 40%. The large room "Renaud Barrault" comprises 746 seats and presents a wide variety of shows, theatre, one man show, the small room "Jean Tardieu" has 176 seats and the one called "Roland Topor" of 86 places. I had seen it a while, the comic hired Christophe Alévêque with a delirious and very well conducted show. Rates are between 30 and 40 euros. A restaurant with bar, located in the basement, but open to the entrance hall, offers menus and dishes for lunch and dinner. (entries between 8 and 9 euros, dishes of choice varied between 12 and 24 euros and desserts between 8 and 9 euros. Access to this theatre can be done by the Metro station "Franklin D Roosevelt" lines No. 1 and 9

  • After 2 years of subscription and many shows seen in a few years, my personal statistics: about 10 shows: excellent 1, 2 goods, 3 ways; 2 bad, 2 excecrables so rather negative record - obviously this theater to the quality of its flaws and conversely, namely that it makes creating and it is meritorious, on the other hand, having no references at the time of the choice of shows, we're to go see representations.. .perfectibles to be nice! in fact, there are those who are totally appalling!
