Joining Cuccioli and Diaz for the 7 PM performance will be Jim Stanek (Lestat, Little Women), Rick Hip-Flores (who has performed in the pits of Billy Elliot, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and The Radio City Christmas Spectacular) and Ereni Sevasti (The Bacchae at The Public, Carnival at The Kennedy Center). Hip-Flores will also serve as musical director.
Additionally, Cuccioli will appear in the Nov. 16 performance of Jacques Brel Returns, held at 7 PM, alongside Ereni Sevasti, Arlo Hill and David Wolfson.
The production, which has been playing at the Triad for over a year, is an intimate and engaging cabaret version of the hit Off-Broadway production Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. Jacques Brel Returns features a rotating cast of Broadway performers, members from the 2006-07 run at The Zipper and occasional surprise guests.
Jacques Brel Returns is presented by Dan Whitten, Mark Beigelman, Peter Martin and Tiger Theatricals. Originally created by Dan Whitten and Mark Beigelman, the show features Jacques Brel favorites including "Carousel," "My Childhood," "If We Only Have Love," "Ne Mes Quitte Pas," "The Bulls," "Amsterdam" and "I Loved."
A tour of Jacques Brel Returns… The Music of Brel, Blau, Shuman and Jouannest is also planned to launch in spring 2012 in Cleveland, where Brel saved the Playhouse Square Theatre in the early 70s.
The Triad is located at 158 West 72nd Street. For more information and tickets, call (800) 838-3006 or visit www.BrownPaperTickets.com.
