Frank McCourt's The Irish and How They Got That Way is opening at the Davis Square Theatre in Somerville on Thursday, January 24 and running through March 17, 2013.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, the late Frank McCourt, The Irish and How They Got That Way tells the story of the Irish experience both in Ireland and the United States. It's imbued with McCourt's unique humor and draws on his personal experience living in both countries. Told through a revue of songs, this sometime irreverent but always loving look at the Irish people features music ranging from traditional Irish melodies to the works of Broadway star George M. Cohan to the music of U2.
Performances are Thursday & Friday evenings at 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays at 4 p.m. & 7:30 p.m; and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m.. Tickets are $39.00 - $42.00 and are available by calling 800-660-8462 or online at www.frankmccourtstheirish.com.
