- Guest Artist
Acclaimed Broadway singer Christine Andreas, accompanied by a live band, personifies Edith Piaf as dancers embody the different characters who kept company with the chanteuse throughout her life and in her songs. Frenchborn artistic director Pascal Rioult, who grew up with Piaf’s emotive music, notes “This evening will conjure her dramatic, inspiring life, as she rose from the dark streets of Paris to the glamorous lights of Broadway.” Click here for artist's website.
