Dancing at Lughnasa on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
The Irish Rep presents a revival of Brian Friel's Tony-winning memory play about the Mundy sisters, unmarried ladies of a certain age facing the last days of summer, both literally and figuratively.

The Off-Broadway production of Dancing at Lughnasa closed January 29, 2012. For current Off-Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

From the theatre:

This extraordinary play, widely regarded as Friel’s masterpiece, is the study of five unmarried sisters (named for Friel’s mother and sisters) who live in a modest cottage in Donegal. On the threshold of the autumn of 1936, the household revolves around the eight year old love-child, Michael, and the Mundy brother priest, Uncle Jack, recently returned from 25 years in a leper colony in Uganda. Ancient tribal customs and Christian beliefs clash as the autumnal fires celebrating the Harvest God, Lugh, bathe the high grass in golden light and distant music on the radio floats across the fields. The sisters, with unfailing courage and sweet forgiveness dance in a wild, final celebration of their way of life before it changes forever.

Brian Friel, at 82, is generally seen as Ireland's greatest living playwrights, so this production of his best-known play is quite an event. Irish Rep's long-time artistic director Charlotte Moore will direct a cast that includes Orlagh Cassidy, Kevin Collins, Michael Countryman, Annabel Hägg, Jo Kinsella, Aedín Moloney, Ciarán O'Reilly, and Rachel Pickup.

What is the Irish Rep? Occasionally, a group of artists finds a large room somewhere in the city, and settles down there for a decade or so to stage the plays that they like, in the manner that they enjoy making them. That's the case here. Though it's one of the smaller shops among the long-running Off-Broadway companies, these folks have been staging Irish drama in these rooms for quite awhile, and the enjoyment can be infectious. More here.
