Try a little ‘Channel Hopping’ at Maddermarket Theatre this September
Dreamcast Productions make a welcome return to the Maddermarket Theatre this coming September to continue their love affair with iconic French language singers and songwriters in ‘Merci Pour La Musique’, a musical odyssey of famous songs, and their sometimes unexpected French origins.
The effortless charm of Charles Aznavour, exotic beauty of Josephine Baker, the epic tales of Jacques Brel and the power and passion of Edith Piaf have produced some of the most successful popular songs of the 20th century, which, in their English versions became firmly planted into the hearts of British audiences.
Sung in both English and French, Dreamcast open a storybook of these fabulous vintage hits, made famous by stars including Dusty Springfield, Sacha Distel, Bobby Darin, Petula Clark, Scott Walker and Frank Sinatra, and invite you to discover the stories behind some of the greatest lyric-driven works of all time.
‘Merci Pour la Musique’ presents la crème de la crème of songs that have delighted, seduced and enchanted audiences across the world. Some of which you may always have suspected had a Parisian flair, and others which will take you by complete surprise!
So, if you ever wondered what gave your favourite song that certain ‘Je ne sais quoi’, the answer may lie just across the channel.
