About Gay Marshall
Singer, actress, Playbill Top 10 Diva and unabashed Francophile, Gay Marshall, reprises her enchanting Piaf concert at the Metropolitan Room. The show, PIAF: Queen of Heart, is based on Marshall’s 2008 recording, Gay Marshall Sings Piaf, La Vie l’Amour.
Marshall, a Piaf historian, presents a unique view of her subject at odds with the popular perception of Piaf as an overwhelmingly tragic figure; Marshall portrays the joy and mischief of her subject as well. Marshall translated many of the show’s songs herself, and she has woven the repertoire in a way that makes it as accessible and meaningful for non-French speakers as others.
