On April 18, for one special night only, Canada's own award-winning chansonnière LOUISE PITRE will heat up Toronto with LA VIE EN ROUGE, an evening of songs from her red-hot heart!
"Louise Pitre is sensational...she just doesn't just sell a song, she lives it."- Paula Citron, Globe & Mail

Louise will perform in English et en français for this one-night only concert, which will also be recorded live for an upcoming album. The song list includes such classics "La Vie En Rose," "Ne me quitte pas," "The Man That Got Away," "Hymne A L'amour," and "Thank You For The Music/A La Guerre Comme A La Guerre (The Winner Takes it All)".
"Full-throated emotion and cut-to-the-chase honesty are her trademark. She explores every aspect of heartbreak, from despair to defiance, in her own unique style."- Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

Canada's first lady of musical theatre, Louise catapulted to national fame in 1992 when she portrayed legendary French singer Edith Piaf, in three different productions of Piaf, which followed her star turn as Fantine in the Toronto production of Les Misérables. Then, Louise created the iconic role of Donna Sheridan in the Canadian production of Mamma Mia and went on to star in the Broadway premiere, earning her a Tony Award nomination.

Most recently Louise won her fourth Dora Award for her role in The Toxic Avenger Musical as Mayor/Ma Ferd. She also earned rave reviews for leading roles in Love, Loss and What I Wore, A Year with Frog and Toad; Annie Get Your Gun; Song & Dance; I Love you, You're Perfect, Now Change; Blood Brothers; Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, Sweeney Todd and many more.

Louise made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2009 singing the role of Ulrika in the concert version of the musical Kristina by ABBA's Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. She reprised this role when Kristina opened at London's Royal Albert Hall in April 2010.
