  • Somewhere beyond the sea… La France. So near and yet so tout à fait différente

    Hop across the Channel on a thrilling new wave of classic French songs – with a spotlight on favourites made famous by Charles Trenet, Yves Montand and Jacques Brel… to make your heart go BOUM!

    Singer and actor Christopher Staines (“Excellent”- The Guardian; “Captivating presence”- The Stage; “Astounding panache”- The Public Reviews) returns after a sell-out Crazy Coqs debut in February 2022.

    He has performed in productions in the West End, at the National Theatre, in Europe and America and in musicals ranging from Cabaret to The Hired Man. He has had a penchant for the songs of these chanteurs ever since listening to them as a teenager in the suburbs, where they inspired dreams of escape across la Manche.

    He will be accompanied by Jason Carr, Crazy Coqs regular and Tony and Olivier-award nominee.

    They will perform chanteur hits such as La Mer (Somewhere Beyond the Sea), Ne Me Quitte Pas (If You Go Away), in English, in fresh translations plus a bonne bouche of French.

    They are delighted to return to Crazy Coqs with this show for la Fete de la Musique. Join them for the joy, the heartache and the charm of these chansons.
