Music and Lyrics by Jacques Brel, Lyrics translated by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman Book by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman, Directed by Mary Ellen Allison
According to New York Times music and theater critic William Ruhlmann, “Jacques Brel occupied a position in French popular music roughly comparable to that of Bob Dylan in the U.S.”; Brel’s songs “explored the glories and humiliations of love, the passage of time, and, unflinchingly, death. The material worked theatrically because each song defined a character and told a story.” The original production was one of the longest-running off-Broadway shows in history. Professor Mary Ellen Allison directs a student cast of six in this intense musical revue.
