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.
