International theater actress and singer, Gay Marshall, reprises her original show, Gay's Paree, at downtown's alternative supper club, Pangea, for four shows this spring: Wednesdays, March 15th through April 5th at 7:30pm. Marshall, who originated the role of Grizabella in the French production of CATS, and starred on Broadway in A Chorus Line, celebrates her real-life experiences of singing all over Paris, to varying degrees of adventure, delight and misery, through stories and songs by Charles Aznavour, Boris Vian, Francis Lemarque, Dave Frishberg Jacques Brel, and Edith Piaf.
“As dynamic as Paris itself, and also riotously funny." - New York Music Daily
“An enchanting performer who could be said to represent, well, France. To hear her sing with heart-stirring transparency is to experience Brel's art in its purest and most persuasive form." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
The show, in both French and English, features Marshall’s own English adaptations. From the streets, to dives and chic cabarets and nightclubs, boats on the Seine, private concerts and splendid theaters, Gay’s Paree includes stories of some of Marshall’s most interesting encounters in the City of Light. Musical Director Ian Herman on piano. Pangea is in the East Village at 178 Second Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets. Tickets are $20.00 (plus online fee) in advance, and $25.00 at the door. Advance purchase is highly recommended.
