A KALEIDOSCOPE ARTS FESTIVAL EVENT --

ACTRESS TO IMPERSONATE CABARET SINGER EDITH PIAF ON APRIL 30

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Elizabeth Hodes will impersonate the legendary French cabaret singer Edith Piaf when she performs “La Vie en Rose” at 8 p.m. Wednesday [April 30] in Slippery Rock University’s Swope Recital Hall. Tickets, available at the door, are $5 for general admission; $3 for students.

          Through an excellent script and fine acting, Hodes' show illuminates the life of one of cabaret's seminal personalities, says Dr. Diana Dreyer, assistant to the dean of humanities at SRU.

           Known as the “Little Sparrow” and “Sacred Monster,” Piaf was reared by her Gypsy mother. Her street life in Paris, successes and tragedies in love, loss of a child and music are interpreted by Hodes, who includes a version of Piaf’s signature song, “Non, je ne Regrette Rien.”

           According to published reviews, Hodes’s show is  “a well-drawn portrait of a lonely woman, searching for love but with a great capacity for life and fun.”

           Call 724-738-4854 for more information, or visit www.sru.edu/pages/916.asp.
