Join Joëlle Rabu and Nico Rhodes for an Evening of Piaf and More!
The Tidemark Theatre is excited to announce that Joelle Rabu and Nico Rhodes will return to the Tidemark for a special live stream, musical revue experience on January 29th, 2021.
With a music career spanning over 3 decades, Canadian singer-songwriter-actor Joëlle Rabu is being drawn back to the stage as she joins forces with her son, award-winning pianist Nico Rhodes.
A Juno nominee and two-time Jessie Award winner, Joëlle has won international critical acclaim over the years for her theatrical portrayal of the Parisian chanteuse, Edith Piaf. But Joëlle is also well-known for her ability to delve into several musical styles. Her interpretation of classic European cabaret-style tunes, jazz melodies, and heart wrenching torch songs has left audiences spellbound.
Nico is a gifted arranger, director and composer who uses his extensive pianistic skills and thoughtful arrangements to frame and enhance the intimate power of his mother’s superb vocal interpretations. Joëlle’s engaging stage presence and Nico’s astounding musical prowess create a connection that can only describe this duo as electric.
‘Piaf and More’ is a musical revue combining some of those iconic ‘chansons réalistes’ of the Piaf era, as well as contemporary storytelling ballads sprinkled with intimate conversations of life’s sorrows and humour.
Their entertaining banter, that can only stem from their intergenerational points of view; their life’s paths through heartache and laughter and their vulnerability is the fodder that produces musicality and theatricality into an unforgettable evening of lively entertainment and lush musical moments.
