This show delivers what it promises: stirring blarney, a bit of hokum, genuine heartache and much joy.
Set in McCourt’s Pub, complete with a working bar, the narration weaves a buoyant blend of traditional songs, show tunes and pop – from “Danny Boy” and George M. Cohan to U2 – with a reminder of the injustices, humiliations, and privations suffered by the Irish people both in Ireland and here in their new neighborhoods in America.
