Satrapi Gets Theatrical

Paris Report by Darius KADIVAR


Marjane Satrapi to Stage "Broderies" album on Paris Theater this Fall 

The incredible success of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis continues in France upon winning the Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival has now drawn interest on her other albums and future projects of her money making and critically acclaimed franchise. 


Satrapi will be staging her Album Broderies for a unique representation that based upon  its eventual success will probably be prolonged and go on tour, throughout the country.

It will be staged this fall at the prestigious Rond Point Theater down the Champs Elysee in Paris.


Little is known as to whom will be playing in this theater adaptation  but Satrapi is most likely to direct it and maybe even play her own role, but that is not yet confirmed or denied by herself or her entourage.

Director and actor Jean Michel Ribbes who heads the Theater is known for staging many avant garde plays and particularly those of Irish dramatist and 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature: Samuel Beckett.


Taking her Comic Book to a new level of expression and experience announces a new start for Satrapi who has expressed interest in exploring other arena's in the Arts and directing non animated films. We certainly can wish her continued success in her new career.
