Halfway through the 19th century, the café and music venue Folies Mayer opened among numerous other theatres on the Boulevard du Temple – at the time, also known as the Boulevard du Crime, the scene of murder and intrigues almost evey night. None of this stopped the Folies Mayer from surviving and becoming a theatre in 1854, taken over a few years later by Virginie Dézajet, with operettas and standup on the stage of what was now the Folies-Dézajet. Though the Dézajet was the only theatre to escape Haussman’s demolitions, it didn’t escape closure at the end of the 1930s, but finally re-opened in 1977 offering an ecletic bill of classic and contemporary dance, standup, musical comedies and concerts.
