Playhouse Pass is proud to present this unique opportunity to hear the award-winning Jenna Russell, the star of Piaf, in conversation with Adam Penford.

Known to viewers of BBC1’s EastEnders fans for her stint as Michelle Fowler, Jenna Russell is an Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee for her role as Dot in Sunday in the Park with George. Her other West End appearances include Les Misérables, Follies, Guys and Dolls and Into the Woods to name but a few.

Now Jenna is charged with breathing new life into one of the most distinctive voices of the last century, as she prepares to play the “Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf. Join her as she reveals what it is like to recreate the turbulent emotional life as well as the celebrated timbre of this great singing icon.

As Jenna’s Director in Piaf, as well as Artistic Director of Nottingham Playhouse, Adam Penford is the perfect host for an hour of informal chat about Jenna’s current role and career highlights, including the opportunity for attenders to ask questions of their own.

Only Playhouse Pass members can book for this special event. Playhouse Pass offers priority booking, big discounts on every Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company production, extra events and much more, from just £38 a year. Visit our membership page for full details and to join today.
