They took some liberties with the story of the three little piggies and made it very funny. My 6 year old thought he would hate it but he loved it.

It's an old cute theater. It is quite hot in the summer as they only have small fans. The puppet show is in French, so I did not understand much. All the French kids in attendance loved it and participated.

The Marionettes du Luxembourg puppet show was one of the funner activities we did with our daughter. Be sure to check out the trampolines across the way about 500 yards away.
