Marie, Dancing Still
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Directed & Choreographed by Susan Stroman
Broadway visionaries meet ballet royalty. Five-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact), Tony Award-winning authors Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Once On This Island), and acclaimed New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck invite you backstage into 19th-century Paris, where glittering opulence hobnobbed with underworld dangers.
In this era of groundbreaking artistry, a girl named Marie (Peck) dreams of being the next star of the ballet. Despite the odds of her hard-scrabble life, she scrimps, saves and steals in pursuit of her ambitions. But when fate leads her to the studio of Impressionist Edgar Degas, she unknowingly steps into immortality—becoming the inspiration for his most famous sculpture ever: Little Dancer.
Also starring Tony Award nominee Terrence Mann (Pippin), Louise Pitre (Mamma Mia!) and Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba (Contact), Marie is the gorgeous new musical poised to conquer the stage—and your heart.

LOUISE PITRE – From Piaf to Mamma Mia Concert/One woman show with accompaniment
We are thrilled to announce that following her performance in the Canadian Stage Company’s production of Next To Normal in April/May 2019, Louise Pitre will be making her way to Collingwood to perform for us in June in a very intimate show highlighting her magnificent musical career portraying the legendary Edith Piaf to the starring role in Mamma Mia, and everything in between!
Receiving a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in the smash hit Mamma Mia! was a highlight for Louise Pitre, Canada’s first lady of musical theatre, in a career that spans theatre, television and concert stages across North America and Europe. In addition to headlining the Toronto, Broadway and US touring company casts of Mamma Mia!, Louise is known for her signature performances as Fantine in Les Misérables (Toronto, Montreal and Paris), the title character in Edith Piaf, Mama Rose in Gypsy (Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Gary Griffin director)and Joanne in Company (again with Gary Griffin). In September, 2009, Louise made her Carnegie Hall debut singing the role of Ulrika in the concert version of the musical Kristina by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus which she reprised at Royal Albert Hall in April 2010. In 2013 Louise premiered her self-penned one-woman show On The Rocks at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto with original songs by Louise Pitre, W. Joseph Matheson and Diane Leah. Louise has guested with orchestras across Canada and the U.S. and appears in concert regularly throughout North America with accompaniment ranging from big band to solo piano. She was chosen to be one of the three judges for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CBC series Over The Rainbow. Louise is the winner of a National Broadway Touring Award, a New York Theatre World Award, a San Francisco Theatre Critics’ Award, a Betty Mitchell Award and four Dora Mavor Moore awards, all for best performance by a leading actress in a musical.

Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich were two of the greatest names in international show business during the early 20th century. The first of them enchanted the world with her singing, her moving life story, and unostentatious appearance, while the other did the same with her beauty, elegance, and bewitching stare, being one of the first European actresses to become popular in Hollywood.
Based on a true story, Piaf/Dietrich is a musical drama that explores the intimate and entertaining portrait of a fascinating friendship between show business legends that began under the most unlikely of circumstances and lasted their entire lives.
Featuring 20 of their unforgettable hits including La Vie En Rose, Milord, and Where Have All The Flowers Gone, and starring two of Canada’s leading actors, this will be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
