Man Behind the Curtain Productions presents the world premiere of “McGoldrick’s Thread,” a new play by Marianne Driscoll, directed by Kira Simring, that dramatizes in original ways the Irish immigrant story as if follows the O’Reilly family from Clonmel to the Bronx. This fascinating yarn is both taut and expansive, mixing drama, dancing and fantasy. At Theatre 80 St. Marks, September 11 to 29.
