Gillian Tan and Blackwinged Creatives announce PIAF by Pam Gems
From the streets of Paris to Carnegie Hall, an extraordinary rise to fame. A whirlwind of success and tragedy. A life without regrets.
On the centenary of Édith Piaf’s birth, her unique voice and incredible story return to the London stage with Pam Gems’ PIAF. Jari Laakso directs a heartfelt new version at the Bridewell Theatre, of the beloved French icon’s turbulent journey from destitute street singer to global phenomenon.
Few people have glimpsed the darkness and pain under the glitter of Piaf’s stardom. A tumultuous life of addiction, lovers, and deaths, held together by a burning passion for the stage, the story of the “Little Sparrow” gives us a searing account of the power and poison of fame.
