The Irish and How They Got That Way

Friday, November 19, 2021 to Sunday, December 19, 2021

Written by Frank McCourt
Original musical arrangements by Rusty Magee

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, the narration weaves a buoyant blend of traditional songs, show tunes, pop and holiday classics – 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.
