Christine Andreas does Piaf for Valentine’s Day weekend at DIA: Tickets available.

Feature February 12, 2020

DETROIT, Mich. (January 29, 2019) – In her third appearance at Cabaret 313,
Broadway and Cabaret star Christine Andreas celebrates Valentine’s Day in Detroit.

This time, she interprets the life of international icon Edith Piaf through song. “PiafNo Regrets” takes place on February 15 at the Rivera Court in the Detroit Institute of Arts (5200 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48202) with two performances, one at 6:30 p.m. and another at 8:45 p.m.

The performance, having had a successful run at Feinstein’s/54 Below,
commemorates the legacy of chanteuse Edith Piaf, who rose to fame in the 1930s with her searing ballads and her fascinating mystique. Her signature song “La Vie en Rose” has captivated generations of audiences, along with classics like “Mon Manège à Moi” and “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien.”

The parallel of having Christine Andreas perform a show based on Piaf is not insignificant. Andreas is one of the great cabaret singers of our time. Piaf, herself, revolutionized the cabaret genre. Andreas celebrates Piaf’s life and lore through her timeless music.

Andreas has created a stunning and enduring career for herself on Broadway with roles in acclaimed productions, including Laurey in “Oklahoma!” and Eliza Doolittle in the 20th anniversary production of “My Fair Lady.” During her brief tenure in Detroit, Andreas will be sharing her depth and breadth of artistic knowledge by teaching a master class at Mosaic Youth Theatre. Cabaret 313 has an exclusive partnership with
Mosaic Youth Theatre through which master classes are arranged with headliners at Cabaret 313.

Andreas has been touring with her show “Piaf- No Regrets” since 2018, producing a bilingual album with Piaf’s songs in both English and French. Her emotional connection to the music allows audiences to connect with it as well.

To complete the evening, a 3-course dinner will be served at 7 p.m. in the Kresge Court at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Tickets to the dinner are sold separately.

This performance is sponsored by Joanne Danto and Arnold Weingarden.

Press tickets are available.
