Molières 2020 : a celebration without a public, but not without pleasure

We wondered what it would be like the 32nd ceremony of the Molieres, pre-recorded on four days, in front of a handful of appointed, without a speech-river or master of ceremony. Force is to admit that the show is revealed to be rather pleasant, and went back to shoehorn in two hours of air time.

But the humble "accompanist of the renaissance of the theatre". Because it was beating a Châtelet sounding hopelessly hollow, as all the theatres of France for three months. Authors, actors and film directors hand-picked cheered as four. Even the bailiff to Me Crussard, who came to deliver the envelopes, was entitled to his standing ovation. "We took the best!

the Culture minister, Frank Riester had also made the move, too happy to escape to the exercise ritual of the étrillage in good standing.

"I'm not going to be too long, nor too boring', promises Niels Arestrup, Molière for best actor in a play private, and that meets at least his first commitment. Of course, the Molière of the stage director in a spectacle of the private theatre returns to the darling Alexis Michalik, for his play A story of love, fruit of a rupture delicate. Which Michalik take the opportunity to thank the one who had left her in real life, and without which none of this would have been possible...

Same price for The Fly, with his Molière of the visual creation and a rare double best actor in the public theatre -Christian Hecq – and best actress.
