2016 will present the most theatrical event of the century. Earlier this year Muriel Robin, Michelle Laroque, and Pierre Palmade made the revel that they will return to the theater to take part in the 20th anniversary of a show they all hold dear to their heart, “Ils s’aiment” The original stage play featured the three actors in 1996. Laroque brought forth the idea for the celebratory anniversary addition to the already established trilogy. Since the trilogy Palmade and Muriel Robin have played at the Theater de Paris.
“Ils s’aiment” was the first production in the trilogy and was established in 1996. “Ils se sont aimés” and “Ils se re-aiment” followed suite in 2001 and 2011 respectively. This anniversary feature will be titled ” Ils s’aiment depuis 20 ans”. Of this new rendition, Pierre Palmade remarks, ” we wondered if Michele remade the first show, or if we made the best of the three”. He further explains that together they will take the best of all three to produce the very best content, with fewer new additions. The goal will be aimed at featuring the real couple on stage.
The play will be the very same show, though it will feature three different couples. The first will be Michelle Laroque and Pierre Palmade, the second Muriel Robin and Palmade, and the third Michele Laroque and Muriel Robin. It will be the first time, since their working relationship began in 1988, that Muriel and Pierre will be sharing the stage opposite each other. Pierre notes he feels intimidated in her presence. Through it all the pair is eager to work together. For them the surprise for the audience is seeing them as a pair on stage.
The city of Troyes will host to the first performances on September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. It is the home of Laroque. She maintains that the city is easy to fall in love with and an ideal place to introduce the work. The following dates will be played out throughout the cities of France. The show is a masterpiece of humor, faith and are a whole lot of fun. The actors express easy and fun to explore themes for the audience, and mix in a little humor to lighten the mood.
