BWW TV: HIMSELF AND NORA's Jonathan Brielle and Matt Bogart Sing St. Patty's Day Preview


On March 10, guests at Paddy Reilly's Music Bar got quite the treat at the venue's weekly open mic. Off-Broadway's HIMSELF AND NORA author/composer Jonathan Brielle and star Matt Bogart surprised them with two songs from the show, which begins this May at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Watch them perform below!

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 begin off-Broadway 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, 2016.

It was one of the world's great romances. She was the country girl from Galway whose burning sexuality and acerbic wit inspired the genius of James Joyce. Himself and Nora is a passionate musical that 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 stars Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon) as James Joyce. Further casting will be announced in the coming weeks.
