Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris
While Jacques Brel is no longer alive, well or living in Paris, the singer/songwriter's legendary vision of romance, humor and moral conviction endure. Each song in this contemporary musical revue tells a story and examines themes of love, war, being young and growing old...but never forgetting that life, with all its tragedies and complexities, is filled with humor. JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL AND LIVING IN PARIS is a powerful and bold theatrical experience that was an overwhelming success in its original off-Broadway production in 1968 and again in the 2006 revival. Brel's songs are as relevant today as they were when they were written. We promise this show will light a fire in your heart in the midst of the long, cold Wisconsin winter.
