I had the pleasure of seeing the play   Arrah-na-Pogue at New York’s Storm Theatre last night. Monica Weigel wrote a lovely review of it for us yesterday, and I couldn’t agree with her more:

Set during the Rebellion of 1798, the play, billed as a “classic Irish comedy,” is handled skillfully by director Peter Dobbins and his thoroughly entertaining cast, offering the audience a sweet glimpse past March’s ever-present “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” t-shirts into a world where love, loyalty, and a good joke win the day . . .

The story of  Arrah-na-Pogue offers a thoughtful meditation on the nature of love and trust. Arrah and Shaun’s unshakeable devotion to each other arises from their mutual belief in the innate good of their beloved and their consequent commitment to putting the other first . . .

Be sure to read the rest of it here . And, if you’re in New York,  check out the play before it closes on April 2.
