Running Time: Two hours (includes one intermission)

In 1968, a musical revue of songs by a little-known Belgian singer/songwriter opened Off-Broadway at the Village Gate and astounded the audiences who came to see it. It would run for four years and go on to be performed around the world. Packed with wit, intelligence, and raw human emotion, Brel’s songs radiate stories of love and loss, hope and despair, humor and pathos. The emotional power of these songs has inspired hundreds of artists (everyone from David Bowie and Neil Diamond to Celine Dion and Nirvana) to cover his work. The poignant, passionate, and profound songs of Jacques Brel are brought to vivid theatrical life in this intense musical experience.
