Overview

This is going to be an experience out of the ordinary! Olivier Award-nominated actress Elizabeth Mansfield plays the legendary chanteuse, Edith Piaf in this tribute to the singer, touring with Highlights Rural Touring Scheme. In a Manhattan hotel room in New York, Edith Piaf rehearses for her last US concert. But for Piaf the hotel holds memories. Eight years earlier in the same hotel she had telephoned her lover, boxer Marcel Cerdan, begging him to overcome his fear of flying and leave France to be with her. Hours later she heard the terrible news that his plane had crashed. Marcel was dead.Past, present, and future merge in this passionate, memorable and unmissable piece of theatre which is performed to live piano music with a narrative interspersed with autobiographical monologues and reminiscences. An extraordinary musical homage to Piaf, Hymn to Love explores love, loss and longing and includes 13 of Piaf’s songs, each given fresh meaning in vibrant new English translations, with the obvious exception of the final "Je Ne Regrette Rien".Songs featured include: Milord – L’Accordéoniste – La Vie en Rose – Padam Padam – La Foule – L’Hymne à l’Amour – C’est à Hambourg – Mon Légionnaire – Comme Moi – La Ville Inconnue. A triumph!’ The Independent. ‘Mansfield delivers the famous songs superbly’ The Guardian
