History, music and poetry will touch your soul with Pulitzer Prize wining author Frank McCourt's
play The Irish...and How They Got That Way. This ballad-filled Show More...musical walk through the
tumultuous 20th century and into the 21st century is a tribute to all things Irish and the Irish
American immigration experience. Its' sometimes irreverent, but always affectionate sentiment
and irony seem to weave a comforting Irish sweater around your heartstrings. You will hear
classic and favorites alike: Danny Boy; Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ra; Finnegan's Wake; Over There;
and You're a Grand Old Flag. The last two songs are written and composed by the ultimate Irish
immigrant success story, George M. Cohan. An all-enveloping sensation of "being there" will
take you back to sparse and meager times of struggle and triumph. With this production, Bucks
County's own Broadway Producer, Howard Perloff, inaugurates a three-production series as part
of the newly established Bucks County Center of the Performing Arts, Inc. a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit.
Ticket sales and donations will lay the groundwork to build the first bricks and mortar
comprehensive arts venue and school serving the Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Look for
Give My Regards to Broadway in June and July, and My Fair Lady in August! Running May 24
