Marshall will reprise her critically acclaimed Piaf tribute, Piaf: Queen of Heart, Oct. 1 at the downtown venue. Show time is 7 PM.

The singing actress will be backed by musical director Tracy Stark on piano, Jim Pederson on cello, Deni Bonet on violin, Mark Wade on bass and Bill Schimmel on accordion and more.

Marshall, according to press notes, will present "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."

Marshall made her Broadway debut as Diana Morales in A Chorus Line and played Grizabella in the original French production of Cats. She appeared in the Goodspeed, Paper Mill and York Theatre Company productions of The Baker's Wife and received a Drama League Distinguished Performance Award nomination for her work in the Off-Broadway revival of Jacques Brel. . . . Her one-woman shows are titled Piaf: La Vie l'Amour and If I Were Me.

Marshall's solo recording, "Gay Marshall Sings Piaf, La Vie l'Amour," is available by visiting www.cdbaby.com.
