in brief








the show

#LeComte loves #LaMarquise. #LaMarquise wants to be free. They don't know how to say it to each other. Absolutely not. Never has a love story gone so badly.
Behind the door of a Parisian loft, a merciless love duel takes place. From compliments to mockery, from humiliation to declarations: what will be the outcome of the fight ?
An exquisite and cruel Musset, brought up to date, which lets its romantic and comic flame burst forth here.
