Broadway World Review by Helen Tope

Bienvenue to Chansons, the musical intercultural show.  Soul-touching stories about life and passion, from ‘Ne me quitte pas’ (Brel) to ‘Milord’ (Piaf). Live life the French way for one night, without travelling or jetlag. It doesn’t matter if you speak French or not – all is explained in English. This piece inspires our own lives by looking at other cultures. Sung and performed in brilliant showmanship by Stefanie Rummel and her pianists. It was seen in theatres and cabarets in France,  Germany, Iceland, Finland, UK and US. ‘Great chansons… passionate feelings’ (Rheingauer Echo).
The show can be booked online and offline.

"Rummel’s voice is outstanding: it moves from delicate, lingering notes (in a superb cover of Autumn Leaves) to real moments of joie de vivre in Rummel’s take on the Piaf classic, L’Accordeoniste." The Reviews Hub by Helen Tope (4 Star Review) 

 "A fascinating show, comfortably paced and with the right amount of history, songs and personal anecdotes, it held my attention despite me being far from fully conversant in French."  Review LondonTheatre1 by Chris Omaweng (4 Star Review)

Reviews & Previews

'Rummel’s voice is outstanding: it moves from delicate, lingering notes (in a superb cover of Autumn Leaves) to real moments of joie de vivre in Rummel’s take on the Piaf classic, L’Accordeoniste.'
The Reviews Hub (4 Star Review)

 'A fascinating show, comfortably paced and with the right amount of history, songs and personal anecdotes, it held my attention despite me being far from fully conversant in French.' 
Review by Chris Omaweng LondonTheatre1 (4 Star Review)

 'And when the musical chameleon first breathes Brel's ballad "Ne me quitte pas" into the microphone for the finale of her one-woman show and then encourages the audience to sing along without restraint with her gospel show-down, these are just two of the many highlights of an intimate evening of cabaret put together with much love.' 
Offenbacher Post 

'Evergreens like "Amsterdam", "L'accordéoniste" and - at the end - "Milord" made the hearts beat faster, as the stormy applause showed. Without encore the duo was not dismissed and gave the audience still "La vie en rose." ' 
Rheingauer Echo 

'The song Art "...is about the effect of art on us," Rummel explains. Art, she says, is a source of inspiration, of meditation, of feeling, of reflection, of creating strength. "This is more important than ever.'
Frankfurter Neue Presse 

'Developing stories that touch people with singing and your own music, and thus winning prizes, is a wonderful gift.'
World Today News

 'The Reykjavik Fringe Festival re-open its doors this year presenting as one of the highlights the Musical French Cabaret: "Chansons". “Understanding each other is key in our global world. With this show we understand each other just a little bit more.'
Broadway World Iceland 

'Presented as part of the MarshStream Solo Arts Heal series, Stefanie Rummel's one-woman musical show, Chansons, takes audiences on a whirlwind tour of different countries, highlighting the benefits of getting to know other cultures.'
Broadway World San Francisco 

'The Living Record Festival is set to stage Chansons in a cabaret of the same name. The performance is an intriguing award-winning show about France with songs and stories from Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Stefanie Rummel.'
Broadway World UK

'Live life the French way for one night.'
Broadway Baby

 'Not only her show, but also she as a person is an inspiration. And it is palpable that she is self-confidently committed to making a difference in this world with her art, her stories and her intercultural competence'.
Memo Media

 

 

Audience Reactions & Reviews

  • 'As a concert performance your delivery is wonderful. I wish you were on tour (virtual or actual) to all the French language and festival groups in North America.'  
  • This was such a beautifully unexpected pleasure. My friend had an extra ticket and invited me along to a show I wouldn't have attended otherwise. From the minute the lights went down, Stefanie Rummel created an atmosphere so moving, so nostalgic and electric, we were all spellbound. Not many performers make me cry, or smile through those tears, ( I hate feeling like I am being manipulated, and no, I did NOT cry at Love Story) but this show was exquisitely masterful and genuine . Go see it. Take some tissues. You didn't know you wanted to see a cabaret show - but you did.'The best way to visit France is through its songs!'  Barbara Gruber
  • 'This cultural joy needs doing.'  
  • 'It really was a wonderful show.  I don’t often get an opportunity to watch or attend Cabaret’s in French!' 
  • 'The virtual Zoom show felt like a live Cabaret performance.' 
  • 'Soul touching'
  • 'Brava pour votre performance et bonne chance avec votre spectacle!' 
  • 'Amazingly, You made a cabaret atmosphere appear on Zoom despite Zoom.' 

 Audience Reviews:  

''Your pianist superb.'  

'The interactivity, and cultural lesson, quite winning.'  
'Quality, legendary songs with the deep meanings attached give gift of genuine benefit. As an educational music tour...anywhere.' 

'An award-winning German chanteuse performing French songs and narrating in English- Stefanie Rummel brings an evening of joie de vivre straight to your heart.'
Bob Zaslow  (Children book author)

'Stefanie Rummel is an outstanding performer with talent and personality. I have seen Chansons three times. During each experience , I have been mesmerized by Stefanie’s ability to tell stories, sing, and dance. She entices her audience to watch the show and we are hooked. I applaud Stefanie Rummel for creating Chansons - 5 stars!'
Elaine Davida Sklar (Writer of musicals - former theatre owner)

 

'I was captivated, as was the audience—there is a true joie de vivre throughout her entire show. I loved how she draws in the audience with her intimate stories—she is equally adept as both an actor and singer. And the singalong with the audience was one of many highlights for me, too. Bravo, Stefanie!'
Valerie David (Actress)

Touching Audience Reviews about the Musical Cabaret: CHANSONS Chansons - Songs & Stories from Piaf, Brel & Me from Stefanie Rummel 

I had some amazing audience reactions in my musical cabaret Chansons. 

A change in mind thanks to Chansons:
- One gentleman from London  - got up at the end of my premiere - gave me standing ovations and then he said - he had 3-4 miserable weeks - my show changed something in his mind - he will leave the theatre with a smile. 

A gift for me in the middle of the show: Some…
