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.
Presented by Gil Marsalla & Directo Productions
