The Irish…And How They Got That Way

By Frank McCourt

2007-2008 Season
Independence Studio on 3 Production History

Pulitzer Prize winner Frank McCourt (Angela's Ashes) knows first-hand what it's like for an Irishman to pursue the American dream. All aboard for his musical journey through time! As McCourt indulges lustily in good song and good humor, he weaves together an irreverent but affectionate history of some of the men and women who helped make America great. This raucous celebration of all things Irish is a jovial, heartbreaking and inspiring tribute. Raise a glass and let's salute those who have dreams for a better life.
