Legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf was dubbed the “little sparrow”. Her life took her from the streets of Paris to Carnegie Hall in an extraordinary rise to fame. But it was to prove to be a whirlwind of success and tragedy. A life lived without regret, she died at the age of 47 in 1963. Piaf vividly captures the glamour and squalor, the rise and fall of the complex, fragile, and enigmatic performer, who continues to be remembered and revered today for her exceptional voice and extraordinary life.
Pam Gems’ play received its world premiere in 1978, performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and subsequently transferred to the West End and Broadway.
The cast of this production includes Cameron Leigh as Piaf, Valerie Cutko and Samantha Spurgin.
Director: Jari Laakso; Musical Arrangement and Supervision: Isaac McCullough; Movement Director: Katya Bourvis; Designer: Philippa Batt; Lighting Designer: Chris Randall.
