Touring in France, Belgium, and Switzerland, the show has been a smash hit with more than 1,000,000 tickets sold, won 3 prizes at the 2010 NRJ Music Awards at the Midem in Cannes and the show’s record released by Warner got the “Diamond Record” distinction. Melissa Mars will be on tour with the musical until July, 2011.
