Piaf: Love Conquers All presents the life and loves of the remarkable French singer who stood only 4'10". Born in 1915 in the streets of Paris in abject poverty she rose to international stardom. Her voice is unique and her music reaches through generations and across oceans. Though extremely successful, she struggled with morphine addiction and alcohol abuse. Rheumatism crippled her health, but she never stopped singing.
Some of Piaf's most famous songs - "La Vie En Rose", "Milord", "Non, Je ne Regrette Rien" - are presented in French in this touching, powerful script and are beautifully supported by live acoustic piano,guitar and accordion.
Piaf: Love Conquers All is presented as part of the 2007 FringeNYC Encores Series.
