Why See Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris?
Must see this season
This summer, don't miss this brilliant rendition of Eric Blau and Mort Shuman's celebration of the famed French chanson from Odyssey Theatre Ensemble. Taking you on an intimate journey through his genius in the form of 24 of his songs, from the quiet passion of 'Fanette' to the dark comedy of 'Funeral Tango', the talented quartet of Marc Francoeur, Susan Kohler, Miyuki Miyagi and Michael Yapujian demonstrate his enduring power and legacy in exquisite style.
Often cited as one of the 20th century's greatest singer songwriters, Jacques Brel minted his talents in the 1960s, releasing 11 records during the decade, before retiring from the music stage to follow his burgeoning film career. This revue first opened on Broadway in 1968 and is credited with bringing him to the notice of American audiences. His influence and popularity gained him many fans during his career and after his untimely death, not the least of them David Bowie, who included the original cast recording on a list of 25 of his favorite albums.
Opening night: 20 July 2017
