Behind the Play
It is a troop in the Moliéresque sense of the term. That is to say that our shows are made – for the most part – with the same actors and that we define ourselves as a community of destiny – a family of artists, as opposed to the “casting companies” which adapt their distribution to the repertoire they play.

One of the most famous and most popular musical theatre is from France. The French have been around for a very long time as the creators of musical theatre. They have borrowed many of the ideas and techniques from other cultures and have borrowed new styles as well. For example, the rise of Trancers to the top of the charts has been greatly helped by the use of contemporary dance styles and choreography, something that wasn’t done in previous years.
There are many famous musical theatre acts that have made their home here in France. Some of these include The Pink Flamingos, Camille Saint Laurent, Yves Saint Laurent, The Locolists, Aja’s Sextrot, Moet et Chandon, Pujols Deserte and La Rose des Demoiselles, les Sectrets, le Moissi and le Roi Galore, Royal Ballet du Parahelme, Royal Opera, Jules Verne’s Seideclasse, Llewellyn and the Squeakers, Donizetti’s Il Cucine Della Novemuse and the Autorama du Parahelme. Some of these groups have also gained worldwide popularity, most notably the Pink Flamingos who has sold millions of tickets. These acts have made their home here in France and they have inspired many similar acts.
It should be noted that many of these same musical theatre groups have produced movies of their own, particularly in France and England. There are several very popular movies of the genre and some of them have become hugely successful. In fact, there are even stage shows based on some of these themes. Les Miserables is a popular TV series, as is Idol, Royal Orchid, and Don’t Take Me Alive. All of these have achieved massive success, with each one selling more tickets than any other during their respective runs.
Some of the most popular musical theatre stars in France include Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Balanchine, Yves Montalcini, Joanna Masse, Daniel Ayusin, Vincent Piazza, and Andre Bocelli. Balanchine, a former theatre director, has achieved international fame through plays such as Le Figaro and Liza. Masse played the role of Jean Sibelius in the movie La Perloga. And while Yves Saint Laurent is best known for his leading roles in Coraline and Le Radieux, he has also achieved popularity for his stage work including Le Conjeux, Le jour choeur et le moire, and The Merchant of Venice. All of this has made Saint Laurent the most popular musical theatre star in France.

The impressive cast has made the Circle Line a favourite among young viewers. Other notable musical theatre stars of the past include Jean Sibelius, Maxim Lysenov, Maxim Boyko, and Jean Baptiste Camille.
Some other theatres in France also deserve mention. The Lycee de la Plage, a historic Roman theatre, has been converted into a cinema. It has been used for many popular movies, including The Breakfast Club, Grease, and A History Of Violence. The Seineau des Mericlons, or The Water Palace, is an ancient palace that once served as the court of King Louis IV. Its long, grand corridors have been turned into a spectacular musical stage. The Theatre National, or Tournai, was built to host numerous theatrical performances.
For many years, the Le Louvre in Paris was home to the largest collection of works by the best-known modern artists in the world. It hosted popular shows by such artists as Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso’s wife, Camille, and many others.

Knowing a little about the famous French musical theatre before your trip will allow you to enjoy it more fully than if you had no knowledge at all about the history of this fascinating genre.
Writer Steven Barnes states “art is self-expression” and “successful art is self-expression and communication.” It is the ability of the artist to successfully and vividly paint a scene that connects with us on multiple levels: psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually that determines how successful the artistic rendition of life will be. We are often drawn to artistic creations that cause us to reflect upon our own lives, creations that appeal to our senses à la dancing on a wave of human emotions that allow us to become part of the work itself, and creations that conjure a sense of oneness as they remind us of our similarities. These similarities bind us by reinforcing that we all share similar desires, triumphs, failures, and have similar aspirations.
Existing as a publication that thrives on shedding light on untapped talent, it is always an honor to witness beauty in the making, and a privilege to see raw talent unbridled by small stages. The cast and crew of “Pass It Down” surely unshackled their creative souls and allowed them to shine brightly through the rain speckled night that canvased Morrow, GA as many gathered at the Family Life Center of Travelers Rest Missionary Baptist Church. For those of us in attendance, the cast truly resonated as stars. The cast were stars that warmed our hearts with their portrayal of characters that seemed all too familiar to some as they depicted the lives of four generations of women connected by family ties, joy, pain, and hope.
“Pass It Down” is a work of art that opened the eyes, ears, and minds of all those in attendance. The matriarch of the play, Marlene (Tiffany Wade), whose quick wit and timeless wisdom comes across as crass at first, but proves to be words to live by. It felt as though we were sitting in her living room listening in on the “grown folks” conversations of four beautiful women that span four generations-all who are dealing with their own issues in life. They all felt real in their interactions and powerfully conveyed their feelings verbally and non-verbally: the weariness of Lenny (Erica Lemons) who is dealing with the loss of her cheating alcoholic husband; the loneliness of Ruby (Latoya Haynes) who is trying to climb down off her high horse and finally find love with a good man; the free-spirited Liz (Beliria Sims) who is involved in a biracial relationship. Marlene bestows her opinions on her girls if they want to hear it or not. There were topics discussed that are racy, yet relevant. Everything from religion to homosexuality to death was explored by these very multi-talented actors. The “everyday” talent of these actors range from modeling and cooking to poetry and politics. Many of them can be seen in productions by Tyler Perry and other independent filmmakers and playwrights.
This play was brilliantly written and produced by Siddeeqah Powell. She is a down-to-earth young woman, who wants nothing more than to catapult not only her but also the actors that she works with to the next level in the entertainment business. She is very driven and determined. The direction was done by the “industry crusher” Bianca Houston. The play was seamless and very well organized. Keep your eyes out for this two young ladies-they are definitely on an extraordinary voyage to prominence in the performing arts.
