Arnie Johnston's Play is a Success

Jacques Brel's Lonesome Losers of the Night (written by Arnie Johnston) just closed a very successful run (July 8-12) at the 300-seat Theatre on the Lake in Chicago with the original cast from last fall. Each summer TotL chooses eight hit shows from the previous season for a brief run. Losers played to over 2,000 people during its week's run, and Arnie did a talk-back with the audience one evening and sang a couple of Brel songs. Losers is currently in rehearsal for an August-September production in Cincinnati, produced by Queen City Off Broadway on the campus of Cincinnati State University. And a noted cabaret singer, Debbie Boily, together with three other singers, is currently (July 10-August1) featuring his translations in a revue entitled Seasons in the Sun--A Celebration of Jacques Brel at Ovations Night Club in Houston TX.
