Edith Piaf one-woman show

Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts

Sun, Mar 17, 2019 at 2 pm If anyone's interested in dining prior to the show, we can hit up the nearby Delightful Crepes cafe at 12:15/12:30. It's about 3 mins from the theater :) Piaf! The Show is a musical fête to the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf. This acclaimed French production stars Anne Carrere a “legitimate musical heiress” to Piaf with a “soaring voice” (The Guardian). 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 Edith Piaf’s Paris.

She's History - one-woman show

Rancho Los Cerritos

Drawing on diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and combining theater, history, multimedia, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, She’s History! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females. Going back and forth from the past to the present, Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian Amy Simon poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire as she raises her two daughters. $35 per person; $25 for youth/students (this show is suitable for all ages but best enjoyed by people 10 years old and up).
