The Irish…and How They Got That Way is an irreverent history of the Irish through the tumultuous 20th and 21st centuries through the eyes of Pulitzer Prize-winning author
Frank McCourt. His razor sharp wit, coupled with his trademark bitter irony and his boundless love for the Irish People are all underscored by glorious music extending all the way from the auld Irish folk ballades; through George M. Cohan’s patriotic love songs to America; to World War II standards sung in movies, USOs and foxholes all over the world.
A private and limited Zoom pre-show reception for VIP guests and supporters featuring a live performance by Ciarán Sheehan and live conversations with the cast and creatives is available. VIP and pre-event tickets starting at $500 are available now!
To attend the screening only, advance registration is recommended but not required.
