A huge hit for Montreal’s Segal Centre in the spring of 2018 – as The Angel and The Sparrow – Piaf/Dietrich became a runaway sensation in Toronto this past winter. Remounted at the CAA Theatre by Mirvish Productions the show was extended by public demand – three times!!
The show is the story of friendship between two of the most iconic women of the last hundred years. Joe Matheson played a half-dozen men in the lives of these two divas. He also plays a little guitar and sings a bit here and there.
There has been substantial interest in the show and we were looking at another production this summer. The Covid-19 situation has pulled the plug on that but we are sure the show will rise again once theatre-going is an option again.
(with Louise Pitre as Edith Piaf, Jayne Lewis as Marlene Dietrich, Rejean Cournoyer as Noel Coward and others, Louise Camilleri as Momon and others)
