Irish Rep Announces LADY G Extension and Upcoming Performances

Irish Rep Announces LADY G Extension and Upcoming Performances

After a strong critical & audience response, Irish Repertory Theatre (Charlotte Moore, Artistic Director and Ciarán O'Reilly, Producing Director) announced today a one-week extension for Lady G: Plays and Whisperings of Lady Gregory. Lady G is written by Lady Augusta Gregory with additional material by Ciarán O'Reilly (Dublin Carol), and direction by O'Reilly. Originally set to close on March 22, 2020, Lady G will now play in the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre through March 29, 2020.

Lady Augusta Isabella Gregory was the grand dame of Irish Theatre. Today, she is remembered as co-founder of The Abbey Theatre in Dublin and for turning her Galway home, Coole Park, into the mecca of the Irish Literary Revival. There she nurtured many of the great writers of the Irish Renaissance including WB Yeats, Sean O'Casey, and JM Synge. She was also the author of over forty plays and numerous translations and books of Irish folklore.

Lady G - an intimate Irish Rep production developed from Lady Gregory's personal writings and overlooked plays -explores the truth behind the legend. Beneath the public persona of a dour Victorian widow lies a passionate heart and a wry sense of humor. Her plays Workhouse Ward and McDonough's Wife showcase her playful yet tender vision of Ireland and her people.

The cast of Lady G includes Úna Clancy (The Plough and the Stars), Terry Donnelly (The Shadow of a Gunman), John Keating (Juno and the Paycock), and James Russell (The Shadow of a Gunman).

Lady G features scenic design by Charlie Corcoran (The O'Casey Cycle), costume design by David Toser (The O'Casey Cycle), lighting design by Michael O'Connor (Pumpgirl) and sound design by M. Florian Staab (Dublin Carol). Jeff Davolt (Dublin Carol) serves as Production Stage Manager and Shanna Allison (The O'Casey Cycle) as Assistant Stage Manager.

The performance schedule for Lady G is as follows: Wednesdays at 3pm and 8pm; Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm; and Sundays at 3pm.

Tickets to Lady G range from $45.00 - $50.00 and are available through Irish Rep's box office at 212-727-2737 or online at www.irishrep.org.

Irish Rep also announced today a special concert performance of Gregory Harrington and Friends on Monday April 27, 2020 at 7pm.

Off his recent successful debut of his new album, Without You, Gregory Harrington presents an eclectic and intimate evening of his unique interpretations of great classics to modern greats. Joined by highly acclaimed musicians Brandon Lewis on drums, Dan Montgomery on bass, Jake Pinto on keyboard, and Ric Molina on guitar, the evening will journey from Miles Davis to Django Reinhardt and incorporate incredible jazz standards and bossa nova songs as well as works by Leonard Cohen, Norah Jones, Dave Brubeck and many in between.

Gregory Harrington and Friends will take place on The Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage at Irish Repertory Theatre (132 West 22nd Street). Tickets are general admission and are priced at $25, with member and student tickets available for $10. Tickets are available through Irish Rep's box office at 212-727-2737 or online at www.irishrep.org.

Irish Rep is proud to announce the creative team for their upcoming production of The Smuggler, written by Ronán Noone (The Second Girl), directed by Nicola Murphy (Pumpgirl) and starring Michael Mellamphy (The O'Casey Cycle). Previews for The Smuggler begin in the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre on April 8, 2020, with opening night set for April 14, 2020, for a limited engagement through May 10, 2020.

Michael Palmer (Pumpgirl) will serve as production stage manager.

Tim Finnegan is an Irish immigrant living the American dream - and he's here to tell you all about it. Out of work, ashamed and angry, with his marriage on the rocks, Tim sinks into the seedy underbelly of his small town. With the help of a few friends, he soon sees opportunities to climb the ladder - so long as he's willing to bend the rules. Written entirely in rhymed verse, this strikingly original work by Ronán Noone won the best playwright award at Origin Theatre's 1st Irish Festival in 2019.

The performance schedule for The Smuggler will be as follows: Wednesdays at 3pm and 8pm; Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm; and Sundays at 3pm. Exceptions: there will be no 3pm performance on Wednesday April 15.

Tickets to The Smuggler range from $45-$50 and are available through Irish Rep's box office at 212-727-2737 or online at www.irishrep.org.

Currently running on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage is Incantata, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Muldoon (The Dead, 1904), directed by Sam Yates (The Starry Messenger), and starring Stanley Townsend (All About Eve). Incantata will play a limited engagement through March 15, 2020.
