“Piaf: Love Conquers All” is a story of courage and survival, of Piaf's unmatched passion for song and unwavering faith in love. It depicts the many episodes in Piaf's life—her rise from poverty to superstardom, her struggles with morphine addiction, crippling rheumatism and the painful loss of the love of her life.
Creating Piaf is French Canadian Naomi Emmerson, who renders Piaf's songs with a lovely voice and Gallic authenticity. Carmela Buencamino Sinco, who assists as collaborative pianist, is presently carving a niche in New York and breaking ground on Broadway and film. Roger Peace is the playwright, with design and direction by Ms. Emmerson and Adam Blanshay.
