Based on the 1952 Oscar winning film by John Ford, our program tells the story of a retired American boxer who returns to the Irish village where he was born. There he finds romance and rivalry, as he struggles to keep quiet his pugilistic past, begging discretion from a priestly fight fan who remembers his athletic achievements (including the brutal bout he hopes to keep hidden).
FEATURING: Laurence Mintz as Michaleen Flynn, Michael Jarmus as Will "Red" Danaher, Danielle Illario as Mary Kate Danaher, and starring Jeff Maschi as Sean Thornton. With Alex Dawson.
PLUS: Theatrical lighting! Period costumes! Golden Age radio equipment! Live music! And extensive sound effects!
We can't think of a better way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day (belatedly) than sipping some uisce beatha while listening to jazz vocalist Danielle Illario's soulful rendition of "Isle of Inisfree" and watching Jeff Maschi's knockout performance as Sean "Trooper Thorn" Thornton!
Have dinner at either Stage Left or Catherine Lombardi before, during or after the performance and the show is complimentary. A limited number of seats will be available for $25 and a two-drink minimum. Show run time is 55 minutes. Make a reservation at 732-828-4444 or Reservations@StageLeft.com.
