A Funny Valentine – 31st May, 2nd & 3rd June

In 2016 Mike Maran came from England to perform for us A Divine Comedy; in 2017 it was John Muir: Rhapsody in Green.

This year, Mike is bringing a more ambitious show called “A Funny Valentine”, telling about the life and death of Chet Baker, the much admired American Jazz musician. With him will be Colin Steele on trumpet and Fraser Urquhart on piano and there will be plenty of Chet Baker’s famous music as well as Mike’s charming and engaging narrative.

This year’s venue will be the new Cabaret Onirique (www.facebook.com/cabaret.onirique), a converted barge moored beside Médiathèque André Malraux on the Rive Etoile side, a tardis of a boat converted into a beautiful and characterful theatre. Mike’s show will run for three performances – 31 May and 2 June (evenings) and 3 June (matinée).

To introduce you to this great new venue, we have booked the April ESC apéro at Cabaret Onirique on 13 April.
