Photo Flash: First Look at Cinnabar Theatre's A COUPLE OF BLAGUARDS

With Irish tunes and ballads, plus a hearty stew of interesting characters "A Couple of Blaguards" is a rollicking, funny, musical cabaret show that recounts Frank and Malachy McCourt's life in poverty-stricken Limerick, Ireland and their journey to Brooklyn, New York. Professional actors Tim Kniffin and Steven Abbott portray the McCourt brothers and a collection of characters from relatives to rogues, fools and petty tyrants. Get a first look at the production in the photos below!

"A Couple of Blaguards" provides the humorous upside to Frank McCourt's best selling novel "Angela's Ashes." The two-man play, written before either brother published their first novels, features classic storytelling, live music by the YouKali Celtic Band, poignant vignettes and Irish tradition as it follows the young McCourt brothers from Ireland to America and tells how they learned to apply lessons from their hardscrabble past to their new lives.

Directed by Sheri Lee Miller with musical direction by Jim Peterson, the show begins tonight and runs through Jan. 20, 2013. The New Year's Eve Anniversary Gala will be held tonight and includes special Cinnabar Theater 40th Anniversary treats, desserts & wines, followed by the opening performance of "A Couple of Blaguards," followed with champagne and party favors at midnight.

Cinnabar Theater is located at 3333 Petaluma Blvd. North, Petaluma, Calif. Call 707-763-8920 or visit www.cinnabartheater.org for more information.
