One of the most fascinating figures in French pop music history, singer/songwriter Jacques Brel is renowned for his overt theatricality and witty lyrics, which could range in tone from playfully bawdy to outright morbid. Though quite popular in Europe Brel's bold aesthetic eventually won a cult following in the United States, thanks to the occasional English translation and interpretation of his compositions. In 1968, New York City-based playwright Eric Blau and singer/songwriter Mort Shuman translated a large number of Brel's tunes and based their theatrical production, JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE & WELL & LIVING IN PARIS, around them. This 1990s revival of the play, like the original version, features four vocalists (two male, two female) belting out notable Brel tracks such as the energetic "Mathilde," the pensive "My Death," and the seedy "Amsterdam." It's no surprise that many of the performances echo the work of another beloved cult musician Scott Walker, particularly since the American-born singer has interpreted dozens of Brel songs in his own distinctively brooding, velvety manner. Fans of Brel, Walker, and inventive musicals in general will appreciate this reverent and celebratory production.
