Gina Beck, Daniel Boys & David Burt to star in Jacques Brel at Charing Cross Theatre

Jacques Brel is being presented at the Charing Cross Theatre from 1st-30th November.

 It will star Gina Beck (Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables), Daniel Boys (Avenue Q, Spamalot, Love Story, BBC’s Any Dream Will Do, 2007), David Burt (Kiss Me Kate, The Merchant of Venice, The Beggars People, Plague Over England) and Eve Polycarpou (In The Heights, Mother Courage, Jacques Brel - National Theatre, 1970s) This new production of the hit revue Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris is at the Charing Cross Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Often haunting, sometimes funny, heart-wrenching and vividly poetic, the songs of Jacques Brel explore the human condition through honest storytelling, with themes of joy and sorrow, love and loss, war and peace and life and death.

Directed by Andrew Keats, whose  production of Dessa Rose has just finished a sellout run at Trafalgar Studios, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris is a musical revue of the greatest works by one of the most prolific, Belgian, singer-songwriters of all time, with what are regarded as the definitive English translations of his works by Mort Shurman and Eric Blau and fresh orchestral arrangements by Eric Svejcar from the award winning 2006 Off Broadway production.
