After spending the summer 2018 at the Lucernaire, and the summer 2019 at the Théâtre de la Tour Eiffel, “I Love Piaf”, the musical returning on The Little Sparrow’s life will be performed at Paris théâtre Daunou from November 28, 2019 to January 3, 2020 on Thursdays and Fridays at 7 p.m. including a few additional dates for the Holidays.
Monument of the French singing, Edith Piaf is still honored in the show “I Love Piaf” that tells her short life. The singer died on October 10, 1963, she was only 47.
Created by Jacques Plessis, “I Love Piaf” turns Edith Piaf into an eternal woman through songs known across the world. A show has already been performed the past seasons at Theatre Edgar and Theatre Trévise.
For this new series of performances, it's Anaïs Delva known for being the French voice of "Frozen" Queen Elsa who will play Edith Piaf. She'll be accompanied by Jacques Plessis or Michael Msihid as the narrator and Aurélien Noël or Maryll Abbas as the accordion player.
We've had the chance to see "I Love Piaf" at the Lucernaire with other actors and here's our review:
On stage, actors/singers keep their real names and evolve in a typically Parisian decor. This show is resolutely modern, a choice of director Jacques Plessis who even allows himself to talk about the Internet and "The Voice". Anachronic maybe, put perfectly integrated in the show.
MTatiana is no Piaf lookalike. She performs her song for 80 minutes from "Amants d'un Jour" to "L'Accordéoniste" without forgetting "La Foule", "Sous le Ciel de Paris", "Milord", "Non, Je ne regrette rien" and even "Padam Padam" sang along by the audience.
For "Il n'est pas distingué" as well as "Les Feuilles mortes" by Yves Montand with whom Piaf was in love, MTatiana sings with Patrice Maktav that night. The singer also plays the electric guitar for "L'Homme à la moto", a very modern cover but not unpleasant.
The Little Sparrow, although French, is a legend all around the globe. The show will be subheaded in English if your French is’nt good enough, and you can also the show’s program in English.
A tad of nostalgia or melancholia while listening to “La Vie En Rose”, “L’Hymne à l’Amour” or “Je ne regrette rien”? Meet at Théâtre Daunou from November 28 to enjoy "I Love Piaf".
