HistoryEdit

The theatre, completed in 1838 and opening as the Théâtre des Batignolles, was later renamed Théâtre des Arts in 1907. Jacques Rouché was the director of the theatre from 1910-1913.[1] It acquired its present name in 1940 after playwright and journalist Jacques Hébertot.

Current UseEdit

Théâtre Hébertot has a seating capacity of 630 for the main stage, and completed construction on a smaller stage, l'Petit Hébertot, in 2001. The Hebertot is one of the few Paris theaters that has shows in English as well as French.

Danièle and Pierre Franck are its current directors.
