Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris Summary

Jacques Brel is Alive and Well & Living in Paris is a musical revival which originally opened off-Broadway at The Village Gate Theatre in 1968 and ran for more than four years, often playing to sold-out houses. Often referred to as the Bob Dylan of France, Jacques Brel wrote songs about people actively questioning their own values as well as the rising tide of conservatism around them. With a cast of four actors and four musicians, the show celebrates Brel's relevance and enduring passions. Translated from the French by American poet Eric Blau and lyricist Mort Shuman, the show is a blend of ballads, tangos, boleros, rock and classics. Each piece tells a story, examining themes of love, war, adventure, broken dreams, people from all classes, being young, growing old and death, but always remembering life has much humor in it.
