25-30 SEPT: Jacques Brel : A Life a Thousand Times
25th September 2018

Far West Theatre are delighted to bring their much-acclaimed celebration of Jacques Brel for its London Premiere in September 2018.  The seminal musical biography of the great Belgian writer and performer incorporates his world famous songs, interspersed with his philosophy on love and life with his story narrated through the words of his daughter, France.  The first show of its kind to be approved by Editions Jacques Brel (currently headed by his beloved daughter) the show promises to leave its audience with renewed love for Belgium’s favourite son.

Born in 1929, Jacques became the most sucessful chansonnier of his generation, performing to packed-out audiences around the globe.  He would later be a major influence on artists such as Rod McKuen, David Bowie, Scott Walker and continues to be an influence on performers to this day.  The show covers his colourful, controversial yet compelling life story and includes well-know Brel classics and hidden gems, some in the original French, others newly translated and all within a cabaret atmosphere.
