The Paris-based theater company Théâtre de la Ville returns in the Midwest with their trademark innovative artistry, balancing fierce creative spirit with reverence for the classics. The troupe is thrilled to bring to Midwest audiences two of their acclaimed productions, conceived and directed by Artistic Director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota: Ionesco Suite and Six Charachers Searching for An Author.
