Simply titled Gay Marshall Sings Piaf, the singing actress' shows are scheduled for Oct. 4, 11 and 18 at 9:45 PM. The concert will celebrate the release of Marshall's new CD of Piaf tunes. Marshall, according to press notes, "lived in Paris for years, is a longtime Edith Piaf addict, and has written and performed a one-woman show about her. Although she's done many American musicals and loves singing almost every style of music, this material has remained her favorite. . . . Incorporating existing translations plus her own adaptations, many of the numbers are an original mix of French and English." Audiences can expect to hear Marshall's versions of "La Vie En Rose," "No Regrets," "Spring At Last!" and "Avec Ce Soleil," among others.
Gay 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.
