The Musical That Takes Place At a Bathhouse Hits Paris

In these here United States, productions of The Laramie Project count as protest-worthy. But in northern Paris, Bathouse, The Musical follows the story of a young man visiting the baths looking for love, and finding, uh, something else entirely. If Westboro Baptist’s travel budget accommodated international flights, well, I’m sure they’d be first in line at the box office. Or maybe they already were? The show debuted in 2006 at the Orlando Fringe Festival, and blossomed from a 60-minute escapade into a 90-minute production that toured the U.S. in 2008, and then London in 2009 before hitting Paris this year as Sauna, le Musical.
