The rue de Paris is, for the flaneur, the most fascinating of spectacles. No director of the lido, the Folies Bergere or the casinos of Las Vegas will ever obtain this variety and spontaneity, born of chance and fortuitous encounters between people and things.
This open-air theatre has given shelter to all kinds of performances: from Crainquebille's sketches to the great revolutionary dramas in several acts. All troupes have been welcomed here and there has never been a lack of extras. In the absence of being intelligent every time, it has always been numerous, whether for the great traditional revivals, such as the review of the fourteenth of July, or for the creations.
I have been content to add a few legends from the works of the best authors.
