Edith Piaf - The Great French Chanteuse

Hi Everyone - Would anyone be interested in coming to watch a theatre production of Edith Piaf - The Concert? March 13th Southbank Centre. Script written by the original Piaf actress Jane Lapotaire and narrated by June Brown (Eastenders star). With a full orchestra, choir and great lead - I hope we can get a group together. Deborah

Fifty years after millions of adoring fans thronged the streets of Paris for the state funeral of Edith Piaf, this large-scale production, premiering a script by Jane Lapotaire, pays homage to the life and music of the troubled chanteuse best known for the classics 'Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien' and 'La Vie En Rose'.

Christie Laume, the sister-in-law of Edith Piaf, has also confirmed her appearance. Her brother, the late Theo Sarapo, was the third and final husband of the French icon. Laume will share her memoirs as a protégé, friend and relative.

Performers
June Brown narrator
Eva Stanley-Jones lead singer
Peter Straker special guest

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
