If you are anywhere near Paris, run, don't walk, to see Une Chambre en Inde, a mind-blowing new piece of multilingual political theatre from the extraordinary Théâtre du Soleil under the direction of Ariane Mnouchkine. The show runs now through early spring at the Cartoucherie (Metro Château de Vincennes, then a free Navette or RATP #112 to this space on the outskirts of Paris). Call 01 42 74 24 08 for tickets.
Come early to enjoy the sumptuous Indian dinner -- Ariane will greet you at the door. And if you select a seat up close, you can watch Ariane watching the show, which is a show itself -- see a master at work, making on-the-fly adjustments via walkie-talkie to the booth!
