Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris


  • Lyric Theatre, Belfast www.lyrictheatre.co.uk Ridgeway St Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT9 United Kingdom (map)

While Jacques Brel is no longer alive, well or living in Paris, the singer/songwriter’s legendary vision of romance, humour and moral conviction endure. Each song in this contemporary musical revue tells a story and examines themes of love, war, being young and growing old…but never forgetting that life, with all its tragedies and complexities, is filled with humour. 

'Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris' is a powerful and bold theatrical experience that was an overwhelming success in its original off-Broadway production in 1968 and in subsequent runs in Sydney, Paris, Amsterdam and Dublin. Brel’s songs are as relevant today as they were when they were written. 

Matthew Johnson directs this exciting new production for Blunt Fringe who return to the Lyric Theatre after their successful inaugural performance at the Naughton Studio earlier this year.

Starring Colette Lennon, Gerard McCabe, Philip Rham and Joanna Strand
