David Latulippe will be Zero January
Quebec singer David Latulippe will play the character of Zéro Janvier in the new version of the musical Starmania which will be presented in Paris from November 8.
“I am super excited and motivated to present this wonderful show,” he announced on his social networks on Friday.
The same evening, the cast of Starmaniabegan the run-in of the long-awaited return of the musical to Nice. The show will take place next month at the Grande Seine of La Seine Musicale, in Paris, until January, to finally go on tour across France.
Lending its features to the character embodied by Claude Dubois in the original version, David Latulippe will be in charge of delivering immortal titles night after night from the work of Luc Plamondon and Michel Berger, notably Le Blues du businessman and Tonight we dance in Naziland.
Three other Quebecers
He will rub shoulders with Quebecer Miriam Baghdassarian on stage – revealed to La Voix< /em>–, who will defend the role of Sadia (played by Nanette Workman in the original version).
William Cloutier will be the understudy of Johnny Rockfort's character for certain performances. He will “occasionally” replace his main performer, the French singer Côme, said the Quebecer on his Instagram account. A fourth Quebecer, Gabrielle Lapointe, will play Cristal, alternating with Moroccan singer Lilya Adad.
Created in 1979 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, the musical Starmania has been presented around the world, in both French and English. Over the years, his titles have been performed by Tom Jones, Cyndi Lauper, Celine Dion, Kim Carnes and other Ronnie Spectors. The show is this time directed by Thomas Jolly with choreography reviewed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
