Are you attending Paris Fashion Week? We’ve got some ideas for how to extend your trip in France this fall. That’s right when the catwalks close later this week, we suggest staying in town or planning a return trip soon after. Check out what’s happening this fall in Paris. These tips come from Richard Nahem, based in Paris.
Catch a Show
Theatre du Chatelet, known for producing Broadway works on the other side of the pond, has a new show worth checking out. 42nd Street is set in 1929 during the Great Depression and is set around a Broadway producer who finds undiscovered talent after his leading lady is suddenly injured. Tip: This show is presented in English with French subtitles.
