The Earful Tower: Paris

The Earful Tower: Figuring out France with guests who know best. 

Jan 28, 2019

This week it’s off to the Moulin Rouge - the number one cabaret show in the universe (and one of the top attractions in Paris).

Luckily for me, I got to go backstage after the show to meet one of the lead dancers, Amanda Chapman, who has been a staple feature of the show for the past 12 years.

She explains how she landed the gig as a showgirl as an 18-year-old in Australia, where the snakes are stored, and why dancing topless is like a badge of honour among the dancers.

If you want to find out more about the Moulin Rouge, visit the official site here.
