Piaf at the Charing Cross Theatre.
Pam Gems’ PIAF has its much anticipated return to the West End to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of France’s much loved cultural icon, Édith Piaf.
PIAF unveils the spectacular and turbulent world of the legendary singer, incorporating live performance of her timeless music to tell her tale from sensational rise to devastating fall.
Piaf plays a limited run from 1 December 2015 until 9 January 2016 at the Charing Cross Theatre.
On the streets of 1930s Paris, a young woman sings for passers by. Thirty years later, the same woman’s death draws tens of thousands of mourners on to the city’s streets, brings traffic to a halt, and leaves a legacy of music that remains strong to this day. What lies in the time between, is the incredible true story of Édith Piaf, ‘the little sparrow’.
