The show will go on: City of Paris saves historic theater from closure

The Lavoir Moderne Parisien #theater is more than just a cultural venue. A former public wash house founded in the 19th century and described by Emile #Zola, one of #France’s most famous writers, it’s also a historic site. Years of financial troubles, and then the #coronavirus, had threatened to shutter the theater. But the city of #Paris bought the venue, saving it from that fate—and ensuring the show will go on.
