JOY HARPER'S PICK
"Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris"
Although he's deceased, Brel's songs are alive and well. Brel was a Belgian singer-songwriter who composed and performed literate, thoughtful and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following in Belgium and France initially, and later throughout the world. Described as "poignant, passionate and proud," his songs are brought to vivid theatrical life in this intense musical experience. The musical review opens June 20. It plays at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Fridays, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays, through June 30, at the Fine Arts Center SaGaJi Theatre, 30 W. Dale St. Tickets cost $30-$37. Catch the preview at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and pay half price for your ticket. Details: 634-5583, csfineartscenter.org
