Presented by Dan Whitten, Mark Beigelman, Peter Martin and Tiger Theatricals, Jacques Brel RETURNS... is a new cabaret production featuring highlights from Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris as well as Brel songs not in the original score.
In addition to Cuccioli and Diaz, the rotating cast will include other performers from the 2006/2007 production at The Zipper Theater including Tamra Hayden (Cabaret, Les Miz), Rodney Hicks (The Scottsboro Boys) and Jim Stanek (Little Women) as well as theater and cabaret veterans including Jean Brassard (The Kid From Paris), Karen Kohler (Kabarett Fete), Ereni Sevasti (Carnival! at Kennedy Center), Micheline Van Hautem (La Musique), Rich Siegel (The Rich Siegel Orchestra) and more.
Created by Dan Whitten and Mark Beigelman, who produced the hit revival and CD in 2006/2007, and featuring musical direction by Rick Hip-Flores, the evening features Jacques Brel favorites including "Carousel," "My Childhood," "If We Only Have Love," "Ne Mes Quitte Pas," "The Bulls," "Jackie," "Amsterdam" and "I Loved."
"Having produced the 2006/2007 revival of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at The Zipper, it's been rewarding to revisit this material with such an exciting rotating cast of artists," says creator Dan Whitten. "Audiences have been loving the show which has more of a ‘salon' feeling because of our International Artists Micheline Van Hautem, Karen Kohler and Jean Brassard. In addition to English and French, some of our translations also include Dutch, Flemish and German."
The cast for November 3rd includes Robert Cuccioli, Jean Brassard, Ereni Sevasti, Karen Kohler and Micheline Van Hautem as Guest Artist. Natascia Diaz will sing a cameo. The November 17 cast includes Cuccioli, Diaz, Sevasti, and Brassard. Dec 1 and 15th casting will be announced shortly.
