Back from Montreal
We have returned from a wonderfully wintery 2 week run at the Centaur Theatre in Montreal Quebec. Adam did a great job as Publicist and Associate Producer. Jen Jones was on board as my stage manager and the great John Gilbert was "the band". He added so many new textures and colors to the score. It was joy to work with these people every night as short as it was. The Montreal Press responded with favor toward the show, and we are grateful. See some of the reviews and previews in the attached links. The highlight of the run was meeting Theodore O. Prounis, the son of the owner of New York's Versailles during the 40's and 50's where Edith Piaf got her start in North America. He had wonderfully kind words about the show and the performance. It was a thrill to meet someone who knew Piaf and had seen her perform dozens of times. We're working on the next place to do the show! Where next?
