Following its sold-out one-night-only performance at Carnegie Hall last year, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, joins forces with Gil Marsalla and Directo Productions to present PIAF! The Show from Wednesday through Friday, April 18–20 at 7:30pm at FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall.
 
Inspired 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. Conceived and directed by the Nice-based theatrical maverick Gil Marsalla, this special concert stars the internationally acclaimed Anne Carrere, a young French performer hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical heiress.”

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 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!

Anne Carrere made her debut in large-scale musical theatre as the star of PIAF ! THE SHOW. A native of the South of France, she began preparing for a stage career in her early teens, studying voice, acting, and a variety of vocal and dance styles at the renowned art school Salon-de-Provence. She later pursued classical musical training, playing flute and piano. Before seriously pursuing her passion for the traditional French chanson, Anne participated in numerous French talent competitions and TV shows, showcasing her singing and dancing skills in diverse styles including classical, jazz, and Modern Jazz.
Gil Marsalla (Director and Producer) has been studying music since the age of 14 and had a rewarding career as a musician, music director, conductor, and artistic director. He has been successfully producing musical and theatrical shows and large-scale events for the past 20 years, most recently with his own production company Directo Productions, which he founded in 2001 with the goal of supporting and presenting emerging French artists. Since 2007, he has been touring his productions worldwide and successfully presented his shows to sold-out houses in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Tokyo, Moscow, and many other international locations on five continents. Among his recent producing credits are Formidable Aznavour (2017), Paris, Le Spectacle (2016), and Piaf Symphonic (2018).
 
The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is New York’s premiere French cultural and language center. FIAF’s mission is to create and offer New Yorkers innovative and unique programs in education and the arts that explore the evolving diversity and richness of French cultures. FIAF seeks to generate new ideas and promote cross cultural dialogue through partnerships and new platforms of expression. www.fiaf.org
