In 1935, Piaf performed in a club off the Champs-Elysees and soon gained popula上海千花坊

上海千花坊In 2017, the 90-minute musical was presented at Carnegie H

all on the 60th anniversary of Piaf’s last performance at the famous venue.

“The musical was inspired by the award-winning movie, La Vie En Rose. To produce the musical, we visited people w

ho knew Piaf and had them narrate the rags-to-riches story of the singer,” the director says.上海千花坊

The director first met singer-actress Anne Carrere in 2014 when she auditioned for another of his prod

上海千花坊女神会所uctions, titled Paris! The Show. Impressed by her performance, Marsalla offered Carrere the role of Piaf.

Speaking about her role, Carrere, who is hailed as “Edith Piaf’s legitimate musical hei

“Her music is timeless and I was inspired by her life story.

“The director has a clear vision for the show and I just let myself fulfill his vision,” she adds.

上海千花坊女神会所After Beijing, the musical will tour other Chinese

cities, including Xiamen, Fujiang province and Foshan, Guangdong province.
