Whitley County native Roy Sexton, far left above, will appear in the Ann Arbor Penny Seats Theatre Company's upcoming show.
Join Ann Arbor's Penny Seats Theatre Company Thursday evenings, February 11th, 18th, 25th, and March 3rd, for the mesmerizing music, humor, and sentiment of the one and only Jacques Brel. Originally performed off-Broadway in 1968, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris has enjoyed continuing success, and was revived Off-Broadway in 2006, to considerable acclaim. The Penny Seats are performing the show as a dinner theatre event in partnership with Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant. You can purchase dinner-and-a-show tickets for just $20 each (dinner seatings begin at 6pm), or show-only tickets for $10. Curtain at 7:30 p.m. in Conor O'Neill's Celtic Room. Seating is limited, so advance purchase is recommended at www.pennyseats.org or by phone at (734) 926-5346. (View a performance clip here - http://youtu.be/3YSrkyCtnQA - of "Madeleine" in rehearsal.)
The musical revue stars Brendan Kelly of Ypsilanti, Natalie Rose Sevick of Swartz Creek, Lauren London of Ann Arbor, and Roy Sexton, formerly of Whitley County and now of Saline, Michigan. Laura Sagolla (of Ann Arbor) directs, Richard Alder (of Westland) serves as music director and Paige Martin (of Ann Arbor) choreographs. Technical direction is provided by Stephen Hankes (of Ann Arbor).
Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris will be the first of three shows comprising The Penny Seats' 2016 season.  The group plans to stage productions of The Canterbury Tales and Xanadu at West Park this summer, from June 16 through July 30.
