This off-broadway blockbuster musical revue of Jacques Brel’s songs, last staged in Singapore in 2008, returns to our shores with avant-garde features including multimedia projections and innovative staging. A resounding success internationally, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well & Living in Paris is a jukebox musical where each song is presented as a mini play.
Two men and two women transport the audience on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, spanning from fury and sadness to bliss and love in a whirlwind blend of ballads, tango, bolero, rock and classics. Every chanson touches you with a unique message, ingenuously universal, sometimes poignant yet always full of humour.
Bringing Brel’s songs to life with all their wit and grit is a group of four well-known locally-based artists. They are George Chan (Liao Zhai Rocks!, Kumar – What Makes A Man A Man, Great World Cabaret), Matthew Jasper (Yo Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble), Frances Lee (Fat Pig, Monkey Goes West) and Stephanie Van Den Driesen (The Secret Life of Nora, Cabaret, The Wizard of Oz).
