Frank McCourt's "The Irish...and How They Got That Way"
Presented by Mynnelou Productions
March 9 - April 28, 2013
The Irish…And How They Got That Way tells the story of the Irish experience both on the Emerald Isle and here in America. Those who are familiar with the works of Frank McCourt will find his unique brand of irreverent humor throughout. It is a story told through the songs of Ireland, from such immortals as “Danny Boy,” “The Rose of Tralee, and “Harrigan”--- the works of George M. Cohan including “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “You’re A Grand Ole Flag” and “I’m A Yankee Doodle Dandy”--- to music from modern-day Irish rockers U2. The Irish… sheds new light on a people who live, laugh and love with as much passion as possible.
Directed by Danielle Paccione Colombo, the cast includes Gregg Hammer, Janice Landry, Jon Dykstra, Meredith Beck, Andrew Crowe and Irene Molloy. Produced by Howard Perloff.
