Review of La Vie, L'Amour (Life, Love)
Rita Kohn

A quintessential story of love, loss and the wisdom set in the Paris of our dreams, artfully delivered with quiet grace.

Mark Goetzinger's meticulous stage direction comes through the particular nuances Payne brings to each song, carefully chosen to support the revealing narration that follows her from wide-eyed innocence to seasoned traveler.
