In 2006, Martin made his Broadway producing debut with the musical "The Wedding Singer," which was based on the popular 1998 film of the same name. The show received mixed reviews from critics but managed to run for over a year before closing in 2007.

Who would have imagined my 73rd birthday would have been so calamitous? Yes, that was the day the world changed for all of us. 'Normality' will never be the same. There will be fond memories of yesteryear sequestered in your hippocampus. (A brief 2 wks ago).

BWW Review: OUTSIDE MULLINGAR at Delaware Theatre Company

For those of us who have visited Ireland and basked in the bountiful love and generosity of its people, the plays of its most famous authors are striking in contrast. There are no strangers when one visits the Emerald Isle. However, the plays of Brian Friel, Sean O'Casey and John Millington Synge are rife with meditation, mourning and melancholy. (The latter author's 'Playboy of the Western Worlda?? caused riots in Dublin when initially staged in 1907. When the actors came to America in 1911, they were jailed).

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR Comes to Delaware Theatre Company

Delaware Theatre Company proudly presents the Tony Award nominated play Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley and directed by Bud Martin. This romantic, Irish comedy runs February 12 - March 1, 2020. Tickets are on sale now starting at $29 and can be purchased online at DelawareTheatre.org or by calling the Box Office at (302) 594-1100.
