L' INCONNUE DE LA SEMAINE DERNIÈRE:
WHO IS ISABELLE GEORGES?

A singer who dances and tap dances like she breathes! In Broadway en Chanté (Until November 15th at Théâtre Dejazet, Paris), she pays tribute to her favorite musicals, singing songs out of My Fair Lady, West Side Story and Mary Poppins in English and in French.  Having already produced Judy and Me and Padam, Padam, this show that has been 30 years in the making teaches, is highly inventive, and extremely enjoyable!

Where does she come from ? A real artistic background: She had a grandmother who played piano and cello, a father who wrote poetry (who later became a financial controller, but remained a jazz aficionado) and a mother who was an opera singer. Raised in Maisons-Lafitte, she saw her existence poisoned, from 3 months to 8 years old by a kindney infection. "To fight the pain, my mother made me sing."  From the age of 15 on, this Judy Garland fan stepped foot on stage, became Cours Florent's student, and traveled to London and the States to fulfill her musical education. After numerous collaborations, she decided to create her own shows, with her accomplice Frederik Steenbrink, who's a stunning piano player and singer!

Where is she going ? This sparkling red head with translucid eyes would like Broadway Enchanté to go to New York. In the meanwhile, she is working on her new project, a cabaret show, even more personal, including original songs and will soon play the lead in Stefan Zweig's Twenty Four Hours, a woman's life novel turned into a musical.
