After a hit run at Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theatre Company, Martin McDonagh's black comedy The Lieutenant of Inishmore opened at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre on May 3rd and BroadwayWorld was there!

The play began Broadway previews April 18th. Previously, it opened on February 27th at the Atlantic and ran through April 9th. The production marks the American premiere of McDonagh's Olivier Award-winning play. Directed by Wilson Milam, it stars Brian D'Arcy James), as well as Alison Pill, Domhnall Gleeson, and David Wilmot. Also included in the play's cast are Jeff Binder, Andrew Connolly, Dashiell Eaves, and Peter Gerety.

A "scorchingly black comedy, The Lieutenant of Inishmore is set in 1993 in County Galway on the rocky island of Inishmore, off the coast of Ireland. Padraic is a terrorist with no feeling for those he blows up, but has an obsessive attachment to Thomas, his beloved cat. But someone has killed poor wee Thomas. Was it an accident or an execution? Either way, the death must be concealed before 'Mad Padraic' returns from a stint of torture and bombing. Otherwise the recriminations will be horrifying," according to production notes.

Tickets to the Broadway production are available by calling Telecharge.com at 212-239-6200. Visit www.atlantictheater.org for more information.
