Created by Dan Whitten and Mark Beigelman, who produced the hit revival and CD in 2006/2007, and featuring musical direction by Rick Hip-Flores, the evening features Jacques Brel favorites including "Carousel," "My Childhood," "If we Only have Love," "Ne Mes Quitte Pas," "The Bulls," "If we Only have Love," "Amsterdam" and "I Loved."
"Having produced the 2006/2007 revival of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at The Zipper, it is such a joy to be revisiting this material with such an exciting rotating cast of artists," says creator Dan Whitten. "The show will have more of a ‘salon' feeling. We have many International Artists like Micheline Van Hautem, Karen Kohler and Jean Brassard, so there will be more French in this Cabaret version."
