The actor and director Serge Postigo has a new project in his works: the staging for the Théâtre de Paris of the play Grandpa is resisting.
The news of this new production staged by the Quebecer was unveiled on Friday by the newspaper The Parisian. We learn that the original play, which has been adapted for the cinema by Jean-Marie Poiré (the comedy has become cult, especially with Michel Galabru in the title role), is to be resumed on the stage of the Théâtre de Paris in April 2021. One of the play’s authors, Martin Lamotte, will play Papy, while Catherine Jacob will perform La Bourdelle. About fifteen actors will share the stage.
The project is carried out in collaboration with France Télévisions, which could allow a capture and a rebroadcast of the piece on France 2, estimates The Parisian. The rehearsal work has already started.
In December, Serge Postigo also announced that he would take on the role of Max Bialystok in the play The producers by Mel Brooks, still at the Théâtre de Paris. The premiere is scheduled for September 2021.
