MINI REVIEW

The main reason to see this musical is that its a spectacular showcase for two of Canadas best-known stars of music theatre: Louise Pitre and Jayne Lewis. The show brings to light the little-known lifelong friendship between Edith Piaf (Pitre) and Marlene Dietrich (Lewis). Designer Michael Gianfrancesco has transformed the CAA Theatre into an elegant, chandelier-lit nightclub, while director Gordon Greenberg has scenes played everywhere. And theres glorious singing from both actors.
