PIaf! The Show in New York City and in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazineThe French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s leading French cultural center, partnered with Gil Marsalla and Directo Productions to present the international musical hit PIAF! THE SHOW from Wednesday through Saturday, April 18–21 at 7:30pm at FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, between Madison & Park. And we were invited to experience it.

Piaf! The Show in New York and in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazineInspired by the Oscar-winning movie La Vie en Rose, PIAF! THE SHOW is a musical celebration of the life and music of the legendary French chanteuse who was also a beloved icon of the gay community, particularly that of France. Conceived and directed by the Nice-based Gil Marsalla, this special concert stars Anne Carrere, a young French performer hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress.”

In two 45-minute acts, the show will narrate 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 of the Edith Piaf era. PIAF! THE SHOW premiered in 2015 as a tribute to “The sparrow of Montmartre” on the centennial of her birthday. With over half a million tickets sold in more than 30 countries and rave reviews worldwide, this is a rare chance to see the show in the New York! (Photo by Alain Biguet.)
