AMERICAN FRIENDS

The American Friends of the Châtelet Theater association was created in particular to reach out to American sponsors. Cathy Morrell is the president of the AFCT, a non-profit organization based in New York. It can open to fiscal deductibility of the donation, according to the American IRS regulations.

The Châtelet Theater valorizes and strongly welcomes and selects artists in its home made productions of foreign works, especially from the United States. The Châtelet Theater has made a name for itself as an unmissable institution of American musical comedy: the enormous effort put in to reviving these cult classic productions glorifies the musicals.

The Châtelet’s recent successes, such as My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, The King and I, demonstrate to what extent the Theater took up the trail left by Broadway with bravado. The Châtelet also distinguishes itself by presenting pieces by important living composers, especially Americans, such as Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods) and John Adams (Nixon in China, I Was Looking at the Ceiling and Then I Saw the Sky, A Flowering Tree).

The AFCT welcomes any companies and/or individuals interested in supporting the Theater.
