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 Sparrow of Montmartre” on the centennial on her birthday and was inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie En Rose. 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 Parisian locations of the Edith Piaf era.
