HIMSELF AND NORA follows one of the world's great romances. James Joyce, among the most provocative and influential writers of all time, had his creativity, imagination, and desire transformed by Nora Barnacle. She was the country girl from Galway whose burning sexuality and acerbic wit inspired his genius. Ripped from pages of their intimate life together and informed by their Irish roots, the show reveals the private life of one of modern literature's most controversial figures and illustrates the untold story of Joyce's lifelong love and muse Nora. HIMSELF AND NORA opens a window into an unconventional and passionate love affair which changed literature forever.

The recording features Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon) as James Joyce and Whitney Bashor (The Bridges of Madison County) as Nora Barnacle, in addition to Michael McCormick, Zachary Prince and Lianne Marie Dobbs.

HIMSELF AND NORA, which opened on June 6, 2016 at the Minetta Lane Theatre in New York City, was directed by Michael Bush, choreographed by Kelli Barclay, and produced by Cherie King with R. Erin Craig serving as executive producer. It featured scenic design by Paul Tate DePoo III, costume design by Amy Clark, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design by Keith Caggiano and hair/wig design by J. Jared Janas. James Sampliner served as musical director with Jonathan Brielle providing orchestrations and arrangments. Brielle also produced the album.
