The seeming simplicity of the production ensures the emotional impact of the songs … For all lovers of French music, Piaf and her life Exposing Edith is certainly one sparrow that flies.”

"Thanks for such a wonderful performance on Saturday. Michaela has the most amazing voice. I’m not surprised at all that she and Greg were so well received at the Backstage Club! Let’s get them both back on the radio again soon!"
The almost-as-diminutive-as-the-woman-she's-honouring Michaela Burger is simply amazing in her renditions of Piaf's biggest numbers. Accompanied on guitar by Greg Wain, the pair all-but blow the roof off La Boheme... Burger's capacity for storytelling matches her passion for Piaf's life, and her strong stage presence makes her stories about the star's fascinating life captivating...While this show might take on a standard format, it is anything but standard in its realisation."
"Exposing Edith is a charming piece of cabaret that delves into the highs and lows of Edith Piaf's life. A beautiful show that held the audience throughout."
