Lion King, the Musical
(Playing until July 23rd, 2023)
The Théâtre Mogador has been entertaining Parisian crowds since its conception in 1913. Since then, it has been a theatre, a cine-variety, and even the victim of a fire – yet, despite its many transformations, its reputation as a cultural hub of arts and entertainment has remained unchanged. 110 years later, its legacy of greatness continues, with a beloved musical comedy set to hit the stage in 2023!
A buoyant reinvention of a much-loved classic continues to delight audiences at the Théâtre Mogador! Fourteen years on from its first production in France, Lion King the Musical has since won six Tony Awards and been enjoyed by 100 million spectators worldwide. Disney’s favorite story from the Savannah appears as a whimsical live production, featuring a soundtrack complete with all the hits we know and love, and a talented cast of characters.
The jaw-dropping costumes and puppets starring in this immersive production took a total of 40,000 hours to create – and it shows! Lion King the Musical has made a name for itself as the highest grossing theatre production of all time, and this is largely thanks to its incomparable mastery of costume design and puppetry.
With an incredible array of accessibility options to ensure complete universality – including English surtitles for non-Francophones and a tailored performance for the deaf and hard of hearing – The Lion King the Musical is guaranteed to be roaring fun for all the family. Don’t miss out – join Simba and the gang this year for an unforgettable celebration of life and vitality! Check out our website to find out more.

From the musical mastermind behind West Side Story, a Broadway Bombshell arrives in Paris this late 2023-2024… Steven Sondheim's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum graces the stage of the newly renovated Lido2Paris! Come to this historic venue, situated on the glorious Champs-Élysées, for an unparalleled evening of merriment, comedy, and hi-jinks, as directed by none other than one of America's most acclaimed and prolific composers.
In regard to critical accolade, it would seem that the legacy of this musical comedy precedes it – the original production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum won several Tony Awards, including that of the best musical, upon its initial debut in New York in the 60s. Since then, it has been performed countless times featuring a slew of famous faces, including the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, and Phil Silvers, to embody the cast of colourful characters.
The scene is set in Ancient Rome, wherein we are introduced to Pseudolus, our lovable protagonist. We join him on a quest for freedom, which he hopes to attain by helping his young master, Hero, win the heart of a courtesan named Philia. Trickery, romance, mishaps, and hilarity ensue – don't miss out! See it for yourself at the sparkling new Lido2Paris this December – February 2024.

The Rocky Horror Show

Inspired by The Rocky Horror Picture Show that was released in 1975, a tremendous show blending science fiction, horror, comedy, and musical elements, to create a unique and entertaining narrative. Memorable characters bring their flamboyant quirks, charisma, and charm to the story.
The story follows a couple driving their car on a stormy night, only to experience a breakdown that leaves them stranded and in need of help. They seek refuge at a nearby castle, where they encounter an eccentric group of people that entice them to break the norms and embrace the unconventional. The couple gets caught up in seduction, tension, breaking societal expectations to embrace their own desires.
The impact of The Rocky Horror Picture Show extends far beyond its initial release, gaining a dedicated fanbase, and leading to a cultural influence, in terms of fashion, liberation, pop culture, and most importantly the celebration of nonconformity. Today, numerous screenings and live performances around the world have adopted the timeless theme of this film, offering an outstanding show that encourages audience participation by dressing up, screaming, dancing and more. Audiences also enjoy the catchy music, memorable hits, and upbeat soundtracks that makes this experience even more memorable.
