"An always daringly incendiary brand of queer cabaret." –Philly Weekly

I sing only for you ...
but lose the girl,
I don't like to share.

This is the story of French chanteuse Edith Piaf — Where she sings of her love, her lust, and her loss.

In No Regrets: A Piaf Affair, can-can dancers, confetti cannons, and a cardboard tour of Paris punctuate such favorites as “La Vie En Rose”, “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien,” and “Milord”.

Accompanying themselves on piano, accordion, harp, and cello, the Bearded Ladies bring the Voice of Paris to Philadelphia. This show, which premiered in April 2011 at the Wilma Theater, has been reprised throughout Philly and beyond as part of the Bearded Ladies’ cabaret invasion.
