The new production is by Thomas Jolly, a prodigious actor and director from the new generation.

The Starmania phenomenon at 40 years old

Starmania was first shown on stage in April 1979 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. It was a historic event where Diane Dufresne, France Gall and even Nanette Workman sung, amongst others, about improbable love stories planted in the décor of the futuristic city of Monopolis. The book by Luc Plamondon is visionary, feminist, a real critique of capitalism. It is still unsettling today and you can still put the characters of the musical into reality. Among the characters, there is ‘Zéro Janvier’, a self-obsessed billionaire, or ‘Marie Jeanne’, the robot nurse played by Fabienne Thibeault.

Starmania is also a story of many songs which have been very successful on the radio and which are considered today as classics and bring joy to lovers of Karaoke in France and Quebec. The musical has really revealed some stars. Fabienne Thibeault singer of ‘The World is Stone’ or Claude Dubois who sings ‘Blues du Business Man' were completely unknown to the French public. Starmania also contributed to the revelation of the eternal Maurane.

Over the years, many different versions of Starmania have been shown. Forty years later, the memory of Starmania is definitely still alive.
