The cast and crew of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris celebrated the show's 100th performance on June 23rd.; the party was hosted by Camino Sur Restaurant.

Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, the revival of the iconic revue celebrating the Belgian-born troubadour, opened off-Broadway at the Zipper Theatre (336 W. 37th St.) on Monday, March 27th at 7 PM; the show began previews on Sunday, March 5th. Directed by Gordon Greenberg, the show stars Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll and Hyde, Les Miserables), Gay Marshall (The Baker's Wife at Paper Mill Playhouse, A Chorus Line), Rodney Hicks (Rent, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Natascia Diaz (Man of La Mancha, tick, tick...BOOM!).

The revue features
"a diverse blend of ballads, tangos, boleros, rock and classics. With raw human emotion, each piece tells a story, examining themes of love, war, adventure, broken dreams, people from all classes, being young, growing old and death...but never forgetting that life, with all its tragedies and complexities, shows us much humor," according to press notes. The show is translated from the French by American poet Eric Blau and lyricist Mort Shuman.

Tickets are $65 and may be purchased through Telecharge at www.telecharge.com or (212-239-6200). For more information, please visit the show's official web site - www.jacquesbrelreturns.com.
