TheatreMania Block at the 3rd Ave Community Benefit Fair | Saturday 9/10


How It’s New York:  Street Fair! Outdoor theater! As summer winds down, its time to wave a fond farewell to these two New York institutions, but don’t miss one last chance to combine both on a lovely September Saturday.

How It’s Irish:  Irish Arts Center will be manning a booth in the TheatreMania block between 74th and 75th Streets along 3rd Avenue, and many of the theater companies sharing space have hosted Irish playwrights in the past.
Swing by between noon and 5pm for free performances, chances to win tickets and other prizes. The Street Fair runs up and down 3rd Avenue, but the theater-specific block can be found between 74th and 75th Streets.
If it’s another gorgeous day like today, it should be loads of fun.   Here’s to the sizzle of crepes, the blast of reggae and 70s pop music, unexpectedly cute clothing, and NY Theatres!

Irish Arts Center is also participating in the 1st Irish Theatre Festival.  Playwright Deirdre Kinahan’s Bogboy is in previews now, opening Saturday!  And their fall season of classes is beginning too!  A few weeks back we did an overview of their season, which you can read here.  Do not miss Deirdre’s play!  I’m interviewing her tomorrow for an upcoming podcast, and will post a review as well.  Meanwhile here’s some info from IAC about it:

“A beautiful fluid production, evocative, moving…stunning” – THE IRISH TIMES

When heroin addict Brigit leaves the chaos of her life in Dublin she meets reclusive local farmer Hughie Dolan and finds her first hopes for a future…but the idyllic life she imagines in Meath soon unravels.

From award-winning Dublin playwright Deirdre Kinahan (Moment; Hue & Cry) comes a moving, intriguing and funny new play; a tale of deep friendship, violent murder and unforgivable deceit.

Running time: 60 minutes

Audience talkback with actors Steve Blount, Noelle Brown, Sorcha Fox and Emmet Kirwan. Moderated by George C. Heslin, Artistic Director of Origin Theatre Company and Founder of 1st Irish Theatre Festival.
