Wow! We got 5 stars for Piaf: "Love Conquers All" from Oliver Lugg!! - Broadway Baby
" very very moving Callas performance conjuring up a unique essence where there were moments when the very memorable sounds of Callas where captured.Thank you Marie Sussex
" Inspiring Beautiful singing voice which made me cry great acting and with traces of Callas in the voice " Louise Brighton
" An intense performance I loved it! Intimate ! I thought Laurene embodied the subject magnificently and told s great story.Very moving"
" We loved both Piaf and Maria shows as Laurene portrays the artists amazingly well without imitation and excites the audiences " W Hove
"There are not many performers who would dare to represent Maria Callas on stage not just by acting the life but also by singing the songs - but then one day along came Laurene Hope. And what a memorable evening she produced! MARIA is an intense, powerfully sustained and finally very moving show, as the dark, often tragic course of Callas's experience is shot through with moments of musical beauty and grace. Hope does not imitate Callas (who would want to try?) but - as in her previous production on the life of Edith Piaf - produces her own vocal expressiveness which captures both the truth of Callas's remarkable life - and more importantly its spirit." Steve Gough BAFTA winning director
2 Divas in 1 Tour 2018
"From the first moments Lauren commanded the stage with confidence and subtlety. She did not attempt to mimic Piaf, but created her own persona based on the highs and lows of Piaf's prodigious, yet ultimately very fragile talent. The play dramatically revealed that fatal path of addiction and broken relationships which blights to many spiritual fulfillment." Steve Gough
"I was utterly charmed by this intimate one-woman production, which was beautifully staged and full of real life emotion. Taking us through reminiscence and song, Laurene Hope is completely believable as The Little Sparrow. The audience are teased and charmed throughout with some of her best loved ballads as if being entertained in a cabaret bar." Henley Chronicle
We're currently putting on a show called Piaf: Love Conquers All, it's all about the life story of Edith Piaf including some of her most prestigious songs, from her teenage years up to when she died.
