At the origin of this crazy project? Film producer Thomas Langmann, who also confided in our colleagues at Parisian on this subject : “The project was pushed back because of the pandemic and Zaz’s schedule. But we will put on the musical, I think in 2025 in Las Vegas. We will be in residence at the Mirage.” he first explained before confiding that the show should cost around 45 million euros.
The latter then discussed the show in more detail: “I’m going to do Piaf’s whole life, with Cerdan, Aznavour, Montand, Brel, the sets of Paris… People who attend the show will have an outfit in their hotel room and will live an evening like at Carnegie Hall. The gateway to this project is Zaz. Like Vincent Cassel was the gateway to the biopic on Mesrine. She’s a wonderful artist” he confided about the singer.
Our colleagues from Parisian were able to attend the first tests were to say the least amazed, and described Zaz in the role of Piaf: “With light make-up, a wig and black clothes, his resemblance to Piaf is uncanny“.
