About the production

A star-studded production with Greta Scacchi as Desirée Armfeldt and Leslie Caron as her mother. 

France Today lamented the performance's short run:

It's astonishing that such a fine ensemble show is scheduled for only a brief, one-week run, and that there are no plans for it to tour. Some astute producer should take note quickly, and give this terrific production a much longer life on the boards.
