The famous French singer-songwriter Jacques Brel would have been 85 years old this month. To celebrate his life and talent, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, a show described as a cabaret style revue, will be performed for two weekends in the DAC Weatherstone Studio in May.
Each song is a story unto itself and woven together to shape the fabric of the human experience and a full range of emotions. Some songs will make you laugh; some will make you cry and all will make you think. The Belgian born, French resident, Jacques Brel, wrote the original music and lyrics and they were translated and adapted for English speaking audiences by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman.
