COMEDIE FRANCAISE

         

    The Comédie-Française also known as le Théâtre-Français,  2 rue de Richelieu  in the 1st arrondissement Paris, is one of the very few national theaters in France. It is the only state theatre to retain its own troupe of actors.

The theatre has also been known as the Théâtre-Nautique, the théâtre de la République and over all “La maison de Molière” the best knowne playwrighter and actor associated with the Comédie-Française.

Molière in France is considered the master of all comedians and playwrights just like Shakespeare is considered in England. He died seven years before “La maison de Molière” was renamed the “Comédie-Française,”. The French use either name although La maison de Molière sounds more cultured.
