Jacques Brel : A Life a Thousand Times

Jacques Brel : A Life a Thousand Times

A musical by Simon Pennicot

Far West’s acclaimed celebration of Jacques Brel comes to Redditch June .  Reworked and revamped, the seminal biopic of the great Belgian Singer incorporates his world famous songs, interspersed with his true words on the loves, lyrics and life of their famous creator. The first of its kind to be approved by the éditions Jacques Brel, headed by his beloved daughter, France, this promises to leave its audience with renewed love for Belgium’s favourite son.

Born in 1929, Jacques became the most successful chansonnier of his generation, later influencing such artists as Rod McKuen, David Bowie and Scott Walker.  The show includes both well-known Brel classics and hidden gems, all set in cabaret style within the intimate surroundings of The Room Upstairs.
