Due to restrictions on public gatherings in New York State and in keeping with industry decisions, all public performances, movies and rental at Proctors, UPH and theREP through April 12 are postponed.
Hold onto your hats for this rollicking, roller coaster of a ride compiled by Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes), who brings his razor-sharp wit, trademark bitter irony and boundless love of his people to this revue about all things Irish. This show delivers what it promises: stirring blarney, a bit of hokum, genuine heartache and much joy.
Set in McCourt's Pub, complete with a working bar, the narration weaves a buoyant blend of traditional songs, show tunes and pop – from "Danny Boy" and George M. Cohan to U2 – with a reminder of the injustices, humiliations, and privations suffered by the Irish people both in Ireland and here in their new neighborhoods in America.
Join theREP for this sometimes irreverent tribute to our heritage and our future, in the style of a real old-fashioned Irish wake. THE IRISH AND HOW THEY GOT THAT WAY will make a grand farewell t to our current space, as we prepare to move to our new home with our next show!
