Comédie Française information
Founded in 1680 under Louis XIV, this state-run theatre bases its repertoire around the works of classic French playwrights. The theatre has its roots in an earlier company directed by Molière at the Palais Royal – the French playwright and actor was seized by a convulsion on stage during the fourth performance of the Imaginary Invalid in 1673 and died later at his home on nearby rue de Richelieu.
