A few steps from the Moris, a perpetual renewal, built in 1872 on the rubble of a restaurant burned down by the Commune of Paris, the Renaissance Theatre is the direct heir of Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas. In 1837, they had obtained the right to create a new theatre: the "Renaissance" troupe, which was to carry the voice of Romanticism high.
This Italian theatre can now accommodate 650 people and its building has been classified as a historic monument since 1994.
The history of the Théâtre de la Renaissance is that of the great names of the theatre: Feydeau, who was its secretary, created his first play, Tailleur pour Dames, in 1886; He took his first steps as actors; Sarah Bernhardt was its director from 1893 to 1899. In recent years, Fabrice Luchini, Guy Bedos, Georges Wilson, Francis Huster and Josiane Balasko have performed there.
