Gigi is scandalous, romantic young love, but it is also a hard look at the business realities of life.
The young Gigi is being trained in the family business, to become a skilled high society courtesan that can choose the perfect cigar or judge a genuine gem. But is this the life for her?
A family friend, a rich and handsome boulevardier Gaston, finds that Gigi is the only “non boring” woman he knows. Set in the decadent but elegant 1900’s Paris, this all-time favourite musical is filled with such beloved tunes as the effervescent “The night they invented Champagne”, the romantic “Gigi”, the nostalgic “Ah, I remember it well” and the classic “Thank heavens for little girls.”
