Piaf! The Show
With a million tickets sold in more than 30 countries, Piaf! The Show is a musical celebration of the life and music of the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf.
Inspired by the award-winning film La Vie En Rose, and starring Anne Carrere, a young French performer hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress,” Piaf! 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 without English Subtitles
“Anne Carrere conquered Broadway!” (NBC News)
“Piaf’s are very big shoes to fill, but Anne Carrere rises to the challenge, coming very close to nailing pretty much every aspect of the singer’s voice and mannerisms.” (The Times)
