“Each song she performs is a three-act play, filled to the brim with passion and Emotion…” – Toronto Star
“Louise Pitre is `astonishing!’” – Chicago Sun-Times
Receiving a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in the smash hit Mamma Mia! was a highlight for Louise Pitre, Canada’s first lady of musical theatre, in a career that spans theatre, television and concert stages across North America and Europe.
In addition to headlining the Toronto, Broadway and US touring company casts of Mamma Mia!, Louise is known for her signature performances as Fantine in Les Misérables (Toronto, Montreal and Paris), the title character in Edith Piaf, Mama Rose in Gypsy (Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Gary Griffin director)and Joanne in Company (again with Gary Griffin). She also earned raves for leading roles in Annie Get Your Gun, Song & Dance, Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change; The World Goes ‘Round; Blood Brothers; Tartuffe; Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?; The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd; Applause; The Toxic Avenger; and A Year With Frog and Toad. In 2014 she premiered in the new Asolo Rep Theatre production of Luck Be A Lady (created and directed by Gordon Greenberg) and in 2015 she originated the role of the Snake in the world premiere of The Little Prince (by James D. Reid and Nicholas Lloyd Webber) at Theatre Calgary for which she won a Critter Award.
