Summary
A plotless four-person musical revue based on the songs of Belgian balladeer Jacques Brel, the show opens on a dark and rainy Parisian night. Three strangers--a cab driver, a soldier, and a meek woman--find themselves in a theater. After watching a puppet show, they venture backstage and then onto a beach, where they sing songs during increasingly surreal events
