The highlight of the American leg of a 400-performance global tour that is the special presentation at Carnegie Hall on January 6, 2017, at 8:00 pm celebrating the 60th anniversary of Edith Piaf’s final performance at the famous venue.

Inspired by the award-winning movie La Vie en Rose, PIAF! THE SHOW is a tribute to Edith Piaf. 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.” In two 45-minute unforgettable 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 locations from Piaf’s era.
