ABOUT THE SHOW
THE IRISH… AND HOW THEY GOT THAT WAY is an uplifting musical celebration of all things Irish throughout the tumultuous 20th and 21st centuries through the eyes of Pulitzer Prize winning author, Frank McCourt (Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis, Teacher Man). It tells the story of the Irish experience on both sides of the pond. McCourt’s razor-sharp wit, coupled with his trademark bitter irony, and his boundless love for the Irish are all underscored by glorious music, including such immortals as “Danny Boy,” The Rose of Tralee,” and “Harrigan,” the works of George M. Cohan “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” and “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy” to modern day Irish rockers U2.
