Gay Marshall Sings Piaf, La Vie l'Amour' makes BILLBOARD Top World Album Chart, Comes To The Met Room 2/18

By popular demand, Gay Marshall -BILLBOARD Top World Music Artist and Playbill Top 10 Diva - will reprise her stunning concert series - PIAF: Queen of Heart - at New York's Metropolitan Room this winter. The show schedule is Thursdays, February 18th and 25th, March 4th, 11th and 18th at 7:30 PM.

Her previous engagement of PIAF: Queen of Heart had audiences on their feet every night, and landed her on Time Out's 2009 10 Best of Cabaret list. "It takes a brave singer to take on the Edith Piaf songbook," wrote Time Out New York, "it takes a special one to pull it off so heart-piercingly."

The concert series is based on Marshall's CD, Gay Marshall Sings Piaf, La Vie l'Amour, which listed on BILLBOARD'S Top World Album Chart last week as a #12 Hot Shot Debut. PIAF: Queen of Heart is Marshall's vivacious and original take on Piaf . "Piaf was so much more than ‘the poor little thing,'" Marshall told NPR's Scott Simon recently, "she's much more magic than tragic."

Marshall, who played Diana Morales in A Chorus Line on Broadway and created Grizabella in the French production of Cats, has lived and worked mainly in Europe since she fell in love with French photographer, Jean-Louis Blondeau (Man On Wire). 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. Charles Isherwood wrote of Marshall in the New York Times, "To hear her sing Brel's despairing ‘Ne Me Quitte Pas,' ....is to experience Brel's art in its purest and most persuasive form."

The Metropolitan Room is located at 34 W.22nd St. Gay Marshall performs PIAF: Queen of Heart on Thursdays, February 18th and 25th, March 4th and 11th and 18th at 7:30pm. There is a $25 music charge and two drink minimum. Call 212.206.0440 for reservations or visit: metropolitanroom.com.
