					            Experience the romance
               of a Parisian cafe
          through the heart and soul
    of a treasured Broadway leading lady.


Louise Pitre may well be best known
for her Tony nominated performance
in Mamma Mia! on Broadway,
but it was her award winning portrayal
of legendary French singer Edith Piaf
that catapulted her to national fame in 1992.

Pitre is dazzling audiences again performing
selections from the world’s favorite French composers
and the hit shows that earned her accolades,
including Piaf, Les Miserables, and Jacques Brel
Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris.

This enchanting new concert is sung
primarily en français.

Come to Paris ... for an evening.


                            “Louise Pitre is sensational ...
              She just doesn’t just sell a song, she lives it.”
                                                — Paula Citron, Globe & Mail

                     “Full-throated emotion and cut-to-the-chase honesty
           are her trademarks, enhanced by a fine sense of theatricality.
                 ... She explores every aspect of heartbreak, from despair
                                    to defiance, in her own unique style.”
                                         — Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star
Louise Pitre ~ La Vie En Rose
 Louise Pitre won the hearts of Canadian and Americans alike as
 the star of “Mamma Mia!” in Toronto, San Francisco, L.A.,
 Chicago and finally as the original Donna Sheridan at the Winter
 Garden Theatre on Broadway where she held the role for the
 first two years of its run, earning her a Tony®-nomination. She
 has starred in countless musicals (“Piaf,” “Jacques Brel is Alive
 and Well and Living in Paris,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Song &
 Dance,” “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Blood Brothers” just to name
 a few), has a thriving concert career with her trio as well as with
 symphony orchestras across the continent. She has starred in
 many TV and film projects (“A Christmas Wedding” with Eric
 Mabius, “Celine” playing Celine Dion’s mother, “MVP — The
 Secret Lives of Hockey Wives” as Taff Baron, and is the host of
 the new series “Star Portraits” which began airing on Bravo! in
 2009.
