I wasn't really sure what to expect when I purchased tickets to see Caroline Nin in "Hymne a Piaf" at the Essaion Theatre. I was looking forward to an evening of some of Edith Piaf's best-known songs and knew the performance would be in French and English. The performance, and the theatre itself, went beyond my expectations! The show itself was simply wonderful and moving. Caroline Nin gave a breathtaking performance in honoring Edith Piaf's life and songs. The theatre itself is the perfect venue for such an intimate performance, more of a cabaret, really. Tucked away in an alley just off rue de Renard (behind the Centre Pompidou), the Essaion is a tiny theatre located in a centuries old cellar. Only about 40 people can fit in the theatre, allowing everyone close proximity to the stage and the performance. It was a lovely evening and I would recommend "Hymne a Piaf" as a wonderful Parisian theatre experience!
