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.
