jacques brel is alive and well & living in marin

I just saw the most wonderful performance of Jacques Brel is Alive & Well and Living in Paris at the Marin Theater Company, in Mill Valley. I highly recommend this fantastic production. The singers/actors did a fantastic job of conveying the depth of emotion inherent in Brel’s songs, in virtuoso performances.

Since this is a design-oriented blog, I’ll make a note here about the great graphics the Marin Theater Company uses for the posters – on a very consistent basis, for example, their current season, here. They always have spot-on graphics – both appropriate to the content, and tremendously attractive – these have been an ongoing inspiration. This production took me back to my youth in Toronto, where I was first exposed to this wonderful music, thanks to my parents – when this music was first introduced to the English-speaking world.
