What made Reneé and Louise Devereaux
the toast of Paris was an innate charm mixed with blue blood connections; they
could capture Chez Maurice’s audience not only with their crystalline voices,
but also with their tantalizing wit and style. As an act, the Sisters Devereaux
enthralled audiences with Reneé’s dusky voice and flirty, yet demure eye contact
with every audience member; contrasted by Louise’s crystalline tones and
flamboyant, yet charming dance steps. The combined effect was simply
compelling to behold. While abroad in America, the cool new jazz sounds
mesmerized the sisters, and they soon paired their love of singing to this wild
new rhythm. Ushering them into a new world of music and mischief was Opaline,
the dusky-voiced chanteuse and famed dancer; it became no surprise that Opaline
would join them in Paris at Chez Maurice to pack houses every performance!

not approve of her daughters’ antics, which were constantly being brought to her
attention under the scornful eye of Mme. Devereaux’s Aunt Maryvonne.
Little did they know a scandal was unraveling at the jealous hands of rival
competitor, Le Scandale Rouge, and its owner, Bijou Petit, to fan the
flames of discord amongst the Montmartre nightlife and its denizens. Yet
through the tirades of common born Bijou’s avarice and the staunch reproving
love of their mother, Reneé and Louise would not let society define who they
were; their escapades amongst the 1920s French artists’ community would be
legend. Moreover, one would be captured by the eye and heart of the young
American expatriate, George Parker – a handsome dandy and journalist on
the scene, who would find himself having a hard time choosing between the two
