Gabriel Byrne on stage. In his own words.

By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Walking with Ghosts is a delightful portrait of the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies. A Landmark production, it comes to Broadway direct from wildly successful runs in London’s West End; Edinburgh, Scotland; and Dublin, Ireland.

As a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin, the stage and screen legend sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and commentary on stardom, the actor-writer returns to Broadway to reflect on a life’s journey.

Adapted from his best-selling memoir of the same name and directed by Emmy Award® winner Lonny Price, Walking with Ghosts is written and performed by Gabriel Byrne (Hereditary, HBO’s In Treatment).

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Gabriel Byrne: Walking with Ghosts

Two Men Walk Into a Theatre.. WALKING WITH GHOSTS / STRAIGHT LINE CRAZY — Review
6 / 10

It's a testament to the second act of Walking with Ghosts, Gabriel Byrne's new one-man show at the Music Box Theatre, that its bouncy levity and charismatic performance managed to erase the rabid hatred I'd developed during its first. The notes I wrote during that opening half could be hardly be shown on a men's room stall in the actor's native Dublin, so enraged was I at being made to sit through a series of monologue even James Tyrone (from Byrne's last Broadway outing in 2016's Long Day's Journey Into Night) would deem self-serious and overblown....Then act two begins, and it's as if the lights have been turned on. Byrne is animated, filling up the three gold prosceniums that encase him with a sense of fun and purpose. Now giving an actual performance, he shines in relating tales of his early career on the UK stage, and the ups and downs of success. The first of these, which gives him the chance to prove his comedy skills by imitating the many ways actors deliver their bows, is a delight. When you have salient issues to get off your chest, like the tenderness your father had for you, or a legendary Richard Burton drinking story which led to your eventual sobriety, why bother with a dreary lead-up?

‘Walking With Ghosts’ Review: Gabriel Byrne Stars on Broadway in a Heartfelt Solo Show
6 / 10

As a writer, Byrne is no Brendan Behan, but the sincerity of his voice is a fine cover for whatever artlessness it disguises. And there are moments when he really hits his mark, as with the image of himself as a child, saying his prayers and trying to catch a glimpse of his guardian angel, 'standing by the bed to protect me from all the dangers of the night.' In such moments he sounds like his own guardian angel, protecting his boyish self from the darkness to come as a grown man.
