Piaf! The Show
January 6, 2017 at 8:00 PM
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall
Celebrating The 60th Anniversary of Edith Piaf’s Legendary Final Performance at Carnegie Hall
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY AT CARNEGIE HALL
With over half a million tickets sold in more than 30 countries and worldwide critical acclaim, PIAF! THE SHOW – a musical celebration of the life and music of the legendary French chanteuse – returns to America as part of the extended world tour!
Inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie en Rose, PIAF! THE SHOW is a tribute to Edith Piaf. 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 of her birthday. In two 45-minute 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 locations from Piaf’s era.
A recent review in the London Guardian said “Anne Carrere’s voice soars,” The LA Times raved “Anne Carrere captured the hearts of the audience.” Piaf’s longtime collaborators, composer Charles Dumont and singer Germaine Ricord, described Anne’s skills as “that of Edith Piaf at the top of her career.”
