The Bloody Irish, recently recorded live in the Helix theater, Dublin, is a remarkable performance that is sure to move its audience but will also raise questions about the events of the Rising. What he hoped to achieve was something strikingly different and this musical show is certainly that. The play opens with a little girl hauntingly singing in the foreground as seven Irish rebel leaders are shot dead while standing on a Union Jack. The audience is then introduced to the narrator of the play, Sir John Grenfell Maxwell, the man tasked with quelling the rebellion and pacifying Ireland. Oft painted as an ogre, Maxwell is masterfully portrayed by Malcolm Sinclair. They became martyrs.
Everyone knows about "The Irish. McCourt's wit, insight and boundless love for the Irish are underscored by music extending from the auld Irish folk ballads to World War II standards, and beyond. It tells the story of the Irish experience on both sides of the pond. McCourt's razor-sharp wit, coupled with his trademark bitter irony, are underscored by glorious music, including such immortals as "Danny Boy," "The Rose of Tralee," and "Harrigan," the works of George M. Nagel and Josh Newey. Performances are March 10, 16 and 17 at 8 pm and March 11 and 18 at 2 pm.

Troy does a dandy George M. Cohan and Mr. Charlotte Moore, artistic director of the Irish Rep, has cohesively and artfully staged the work, with cast and musicians onstage in a storytelling grouping. The troupe is backed by atmospheric projections of historical paintings, newspaper articles, letters, and black-and-white photos, yet the warmhearted production never feels like a documentary. Furthermore, the revered ditties are robustly accompanied by music director Kevin B. Winebold, and on violin, mandolin, and bodhran by Patrick Shields.
