“La Vie en Rose”- French Cabaret Songs with Broadway Star, Louise Pitre, on March 7
[Sarasota, FL: February 11, 2015] Experience the romance of a Parisian café through the heart and soul of a treasured Broadway leading lady, Louise Pitre. Promising to take her audience on a ride from Paris to New York, from Piaf to Broadway, and back again, singing with red-hot passion in French and English, Louise Pitre will be performing ONE SHOW ONLY at 8:00 PM on Saturday, March 7, 2015, at the Glenridge Performing Arts Center (7333 Scotland Way, Sarasota).
In a career that spans theatre, television and concert stages across North America and Europe, Canada’s first lady of musical theatre, Louise Pitre, may well be best known for her Tony-nominated performance in Mamma Mia! on Broadway. Yet, it was her award winning portrayal of legendary French singer Edith Piaf that first catapulted her to national fame in 1992.
Pitre is dazzling audiences again performing selections from the world’s favorite French composers and the hit shows that earned her accolades, including Edith Piaf, Les Miserables, and Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris.
Louise is the winner of a National Broadway Touring Award, a New York Theatre World Award, a San Francisco Theatre Critics’ Award, a Betsy Mitchell Award and four Dora Mavor Moore awards, all for best performance by a leading actress in a musical.
She has released a new all French CD, La Vie En Rouge, in addition to three solo CD’s: Shattered, All of My Life Has Led To This and Songs My Mother Taught Me. She is heard as Fantine in the Paris Cast recording of Les Misérables and as Ulrika in the Kristina cast recording.
“Louise Pitre is sensational … She just doesn’t just sell a song, she lives it.”
