Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Extends THE IRISH CURSE thru Sept 16
Scott Conte, Austin Hébert, Shaun O'Hagan, Joe Pacheco and Patrick Quinlan star as five Irish-Americans, members of a self-help group who meet weekly in the basement of a Catholic church. The focus of their group? A certain anatomical shortcoming-an alleged Irish trait they all feel has ruined their lives. From its blistering language to its brutally honest look at sex and body image, The Irish Curse is a revealing portrait of how men, and society, define masculinity.
Performances of The Irish Curse continue Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 pm and Sundays @ 2 pm through September 16, except Labor Day Weekend (August 31-Sept. 2) which is dark. There is one remaining weeknight performance, on Thursday, Aug. 23 @ 8 pm. All tickets are $30. On Thursdays and Fridays only, students with ID are $20 and seniors are $25.
The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd. in West Los Angeles, Calif. For reservations and information, call (310) 477-2055 or go to www.OdysseyTheatre.com.
