Naomi Emmerson IS Edith Piaf in Piaf: Love Conquers All

Multi-talented Naomi Emmerson brings to life Piaf’s unmatched passion for song, her inspirational story of survival and her unwavering faith in love in this intimate Off-Broadway hit .

Get ready—Edith Piaf will be coming to San Francisco in the person of Naomi Emmerson, an amazing actress/director/visionary and singer extraordinaire. Tone Poet Productions delivers the highly acclaimed Off-Broadway sensation Piaf: Love Conquers All to San Francisco.

Multi-talented Naomi Emmerson brings to life Piaf’s unmatched passion for song, her inspirational story of survival and her unwavering faith in love in this intimate Off-Broadway hit that has travelled from Montreal to Manila.

Emmerson interprets fourteen of Piaf’s most notable songs in their original French language (dialogue in English) and will be accompanied by Alan Choy’s live acoustic piano. Woven among songs are anecdotes of Piaf's life - her passion for men, music and morphine. A version of Piaf's life was recently brought to the screen with an Oscar-winning performance by Marion Cotillard in “La Vie an Rose”.

Piaf: Love Conquers All runs from July 7 - August 7, 2010 at the Eureka Theatre (215 Jackson Street, San Francisco, CA – near the Embarcadero). Tickets are $25-$36 and are available at 800-838-3006 or at www.brownpapertickets.com. Running time is 110 minutes.

We missed seeing "Le Vie an Rose" on the big screen. Marion Cotillard is one of my favorite new actresses. I loved hr in "A Good Year", with Russell Crow. I never liked him before they paired him up with her.

You sound very excited that Naomi Emmerson is coming to your San Francisco. Have you ever see her before this upcoming performance? Do you think you'll go to see her more than once in her portrayal of "Piaf: Love Conquers All" ? I cannot wait to hear your review.
