I Love Piaf is a sentiment shared by many in Paris and is, therefore, the perfect title for a new theatre show celebrating Edith Piaf’s life and career. The captivating musical takes the audience on a journey from the cabaret halls of Paris to the grander stages of London and New York. It does so with impressive vocal and musical performances from the cast.
Part of the charm of Piaf was her ability to connect with audiences. During the height of her fame she played to audiences across the world. Although the music was undoubtedly French, with her beautifully accented voice, it resonated with those speaking other languages. This show aims to appeal to such a wide audience, with the use of English subtitles in addition to the French dialogue.
The show runs between Wednesday and Saturday at the Théâtre le Lucernaire until the 18th of August. This means there aren’t too many opportunities to enjoy the show, so booking is recommended.
