Cinnabar, the beloved professional theater in Sonoma County, has another hit on its hands. Audiences and critics love its "wonderful, imaginative, and provocative" production of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. Due to sold-out performances and a huge demand for tickets, Cinnabar has extended the show through January 26.

Jacques Brel attracted worldwide fame as a singer, songwriter, and showman. Now his profound and passionate music bewitches audiences in this witty and wistful show which became a long-running off-Broadway hit. Four fabulous singers and a talented five-piece band bring Brel's legendary songbook to life in a vivid cabaret. Cinnabar's cozy theater is perfectly suited to this intimate and emotional show.... So pull up a chair, strike up the band, and hear your dreams begin to sing!

Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for ages 21 and under. All performances are sold out this weekend, but seats remain for January 17, 18, and 19 and new performances have been added on January 24, 25, and 26.

Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris stars Julia Hathaway, Valentina Osinski, Kevin Singer, and Michael Van Why. The show features stage direction by Elly Lichenstein, music direction by Al Haas and Robert Lunceford, and choreography by Joseph Favalora. The distinguished design team includes Wayne Hovey (scenery), Pat Fitzgerald (costumes), and Krista Smith (lights). The production is generously underwritten by Michel Snethlage and Barbara Howell.

Every year, Cinnabar Theater produces a thrilling mix of plays, musicals, operas, and concerts in a remarkable range of genres. Cinnabar's Young Rep offers extensive activities for local youth, and the Cinnabar Singers welcome anyone who wants to be part of a chorus. All these events take place in the iconic red schoolhouse perched atop a grassy hill on the outskirts of Petaluma.

Audiences have flocked to performances in this intimate setting since 1972, when Marvin and Jan Klebe established an arts center for the community. Along with their sons, they transformed a charming 1908 schoolhouse into a jewel-box theater that has hosted successful shows for four decades. Now Cinnabar is preparing another year of lively performances for its loyal audience.

Cinnabar Theater is located at 3333 Petaluma Boulevard North, just off Highway 101 and only minutes from historic downtown Petaluma. There's ample parking up on the hill... and a friendly herd of goats grazing in the neighboring field. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 707-763-8920 or visit
