James Joyce, one of the most provocative and influential writers of all time, had his creativity, imagination, and desire transformed by Nora Barnacle.
Himself and Nora, a new musical with book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Brielle will play the Minetta Lane Theatre (18 Minetta Lane, between Sixth Avenue and MacDougal Street) beginning on May 14th. Directed by Michael Bush, produced by Cherie King and executive produced by R. Erin Craig, Himself and Nora will officially open on June 6th.
