Piaf! The Show starring Anne Carrere
Presented by Gil Marsalla & Directo Productions
With a million tickets sold in more than 50 countries and acclaimed reviews worldwide, Piaf! The Show, a musical celebration of the life and music of the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf returns to North America as part of the extended world tour. The highlight of the previous 300-performance global tour was a special presentation at Carnegie Hall on January 6, 2017—the 60th anniversary of Edith Piaf’s last performance at the famous venue.
Conceived and directed by the Nice-based theatrical maverick Gil Marsalla and starring Anne Carrere, a young French performer hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress”, Piaf! The Show premiered in 2015 as a tribute to “The Swallow of Montmartre” on the centennial on her birthday and was inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie En Rose. In two 45-minutes acts, the show narrates the rags-to-riches story of the Parisian singer’s career through her unforgettable songs, complemented by a visual tapestry of previously unreleased photographs and images of famous Parisian locations of the Edith Piaf era.
