Jil was fabulous. We had a wonderful time listening to her sing Edith's beloved music.
Parking was difficult to find but we did find a garage.

Will call procedures at Lisner have improved. That part went smoothly. My seat had good sightlines and was near, but not too close to, the front. I am a huge fan of all of Edith Piaf's songs and enjoyed hearing them in a crowd of others who love...continued

An unforgettable trip into the world of Edith Piaf- superb musicians, minimalist, yet effective staging, and an incredible performance by the star. However, be aware that it's all in French with the exception of an English translation of one song-...continued

A very enjoyable evening in a venue with comfortable seats. Her singing was very good and the photos on the screen added quite a bit to the show.

The performance and presentation was fantastic! Lisner has comfortable seats and no "bad" views.

Much of it was outstanding: the 4pc. combo, the scenes projected onto the rear of the stage; the singer's gorgeous voice which closely resembles Edith Piaf's except for the very highest notes where she's a bit weaker. However in 2 numbers late in...continued

The show was fine, but Lisner Auditorium needs to tighten up its performance. As requested, we showed up between 6 - 6:30 PM to get our Goldstar tickets at Will Call, noting that they expected large crowds. Well, we were the only ones in line at...continued

Annoyed that I was told to show up early to will call because of the number of people picking up tickets. Showed up 1 hour early and no one was there. I then had an hour to kill. Unfortunate

The Lisner has a horrible seating arrangement . Even a 9 year old would hardly have space for their legs . However you all were very accommodating in getting me an aisle seat, but my 6'3" husbands legs had nowhere to go. Otherwise the theater is...continued

The seats were too tight, the staging was an amateur laugh, the lighting truly horrible, her voice was dynamite and we'd buy tickets to see her again
