Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris
After months of intense training by Patrick, King of the Brel addicts, I finally GOT what was so special about Jacques Brel.... Granted pre-show I had to medicate my ADD (jack daniels) but this second visit was nothing short of thrilling. On my first visit the playwright in me was put off by the lack of book, however, this time around I was much more aware of the fact that each musical number was its own complex character with its own complex story. Marshall and Cuccioli are in excellent shape- maybe even better than when I first saw them. Jayne Patterson is quite wonderful replacing Natasha Diaz and Constantine will be just great as soon as settles down and stops acting.
