Exposing Edith

Straight from a sellout season in Adelaide, Australia

"moving and hypnotic, more than worthy of the standing ovation."

- Glam Adelaide
Direct from sell out seasons at the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Festival and Auckland International Cabaret Festival and winner Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2016, this critically acclaimed show charts the tragic life of arguably the greatest French singer of all time, Edith Piaf, 100 years since her birth. Experience her life, loves and losses through the songs that shot her to stardom including La Vie En Rose and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien. Created and performed by Michaela Burger (vocals) and Greg Wain (guitar), Exposing Edith is a stunning mix of authentic French chanson and contemporary sounds punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of Piaf’s life which are recounted by Burger, who also takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith’s half-sister Momone, to several of her lovers and, of course, Edith Piaf herself. Burger has been dubbed as Australia’s very own "little sparrow" with The Age describing her as "A blazing life force in her evocation of Piaf. The interpretation is so near to perfect and the resemblance to Piaf so uncanny, I felt tingles down my spine”. "Sublime." – Libbi Gorr, ABC Melbourne For your comfort and security, you may be subject to additional checks on your visit to London theatres.
