Birdland theater presents Myriam Phiro in ''Piaf at 100'' show!
Myriam Phiro revives Edith Piaf tribute show with a fresh take
Since 2015, the year that marked Piaf's centennial, Myriam Phiro has been guiding audiences through the decadent world of Edith Piaf using her timeless songs to retell the life of the icon who is her greatest inspiration in becoming a performer herself. Accompanied by her all-star trio, the chanteuse will offer a solo-rendition of her own 'Piaf at 100' cabaret show, recreating the brothels, circuses and nightclubs that created the great Piaf we all know. The performance will be held at the new Birdland theater, a cultural treasure full of a rich tradition in the heart of NYC.

A word by Ms. Phiro:
I'm so very honored to make my Birdland debut while paying tribute to a Lady who's inspired me (and countless others) so much in becoming a performer! To quote one of her lesser-known songs ''Amour du mois de Mai'', I'd say this is exactly what describes the intention of this show: ''l’amour le plus beau est comme un doux refrain/the most beautiful love is like a sweet refrain''. Springtime in NYC brings us this lightness of heart that in turn compels me to sing about love and passion, the way the Great Piaf did. I'm excited to share this great legacy with you all, rendering her songs both in French and English. Let's all toast to l'Amour together!

When the original Birdland opened sixty years ago in December of 1949, Charlie Parker was the headliner and the club was located on Broadway, a block west of the 52nd Street scene. Since the reemergence of the club, midtown Manhattan has been treated to some of the best jazz on the planet, including memorable sets by such musicians as Oscar Peterson, Pat Metheny, Diana Krall, Roy Haynes, Michel Legrand, Dave Brubeck, Pat Martino, and many more. The recent addition of the Birdland Theater makes Birdland a venue where any type of entertainment can, and will, happen; which summarizes NYC in a nutshell.
