GAY MARSHALL SINGS PIAF
 
Gay Marshall brings her acclaimed, electrifying concert, Gay Marshall Sings PIAF, back to the Metropolitan Room on March 7th and April 4th at 9:30pm, featuring music from her  Billboard Top World Album, Gay Marshall sings PIAF la vie l’amour.  Her vivacious and wholly original take on Edith Piaf presents the French icon as a versatile powerhouse of heartwarming and heartbreaking emotion. Full of personality and humor, Marshall delivers the dramatic repertoire – including her own English adaptations - with stirring authenticity, and not a hint of imitation. Her song selection is an unusual mix of the well known (La Vie en Rose and L’Accordeoniste) and the rare (Avec Ce Soleil and The Lady From Pigalle) with superb accompaniment by Tracy Stark.
 
In 2015, Marshall appeared in It Was a Very Good Year at Carnegie Hall, produced by the Mabel Mercer Foundation and Scott Siegel’s Edith Piaf: An All Star Celebration at 54 Below. This past December, she was critically lauded in the New York Times for her star turn in Piaf: A Centennial Celebration at Town Hall, produced by Daniel Nardicio.
“A definitive Piaf interpreter, diminutive but mighty Gay Marshall, resounded in spirit and song with ‘Pigalle,’ ‘La Foule’ and ‘L’Accordeoniste.’ “ Sandi Durell, Theater Pizzazz
 
“She interpreted the unfolding, emotional narratives in ‘Pigalle’ and ‘L’Accordeoniste’ with moving depth.”  Beck Feibelman, The Clyde Fitch Report 
 
Gay Marshall played Diana Morales in A Chorus Line on Broadway (a role she left to move to Paris, where she married photographer and Man on Wire accomplice, Jean Louis Blondeau), and originated the role of Grizabella in the French production of Cats. Her one woman show, If I Were Me…, was voted #2 On The Fringe at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her first show about Piaf, called La Vie l’Amour, played successful engagements at The Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival, Dayton’s Victory Theater and The Missouri Rep.
 
Marshall’s Fringe show, and runs in The Baker’s Wife at Goodspeed, The Papermill Playhouse and The York Theatre led her back to New York, where she re-captured the attention of New York audiences with her performance in the Zipper Theater’s revival of Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris. 
 
“An enchanting performer who sings with heart stirring transparency and possesses some of Piaf’s spirit as well as the throbbing mixture of steel and cotton in the voice.” Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
 
Cabaret Scenes described her previous cabaret show, PIAF: Queen of Heart as “mesmerizing,” and wrote, “Gay Marshall amazes at every turn as she embodies the passion, spirit, joy, humor and tragedy of Piaf.” BistroAwards.com wrote, “Marshall fiercely inhabits every song.”
