I've seen several performances at the Irish Rep and every time, it is a wonderful experience. I particularly love seeing musicals in the intimate space. Somehow they manage to balance the instruments and the voices and there is no need to use microphones. I can't think of any other theatre, in this day and age, that can get away with that. It is MAGICAL. You're transported to another time when simply the voice was enough. No engineering the sound or boosting the volume through microphones. Simply the sound of the incredible voices. It's a wonderful experience.

I have been a member for over 10 years and have brought family and friends to the Irish Rep productions - all rave reviews! They are talented, professional and hold a very important role in keeping Irish theater alive and current. Their productions have won every top award available to off - Broadway Theater. They make me proud to be Irish. Charlotte Moore and Ciran O'Reilly should receive medals for their dedication to this Irish art form and for their ongoing successes! If you are not a member now - join today and support this amazing jewel of a theater.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way they are able to bring the Irish written word to life on stage for every ethnic group in the city and beyond. They are Irish for the world and every ethnic group is touched by these performances.

Ways to make it better...

the theater could raise funds to remove a large column on the right side of the stage. This would give all of the artists the ability to streatch themselves and offer the theater goers a better experience.

I am an actress living in NYC. Over the years I have seen dozens of plays and always been thrilled by the experiences. Some plays are so Irish that I felt immersed in a different culture.

I am a great fan of the Irish Rep theater & attend almost every presentation. It is a wonderful way to preserve the rich Irish culture. My grandfather emigrated to American in 1873 and I am a Irish citizen myself and am studying the language. It would be nice to have some plays in the irish language

Don't know if there's much to tell. I am the son of a Kerry woman who had approached you with one of my plays, but was given no response. I have published one play which is presently being vended on BN.com, Amazon.com etc (:Carla and the Wolves), as well as two novels and several short stories. I have several "Irish" plays "Molly on the Shore", "Rory's Ghost" (Irish-American), "Ruskin: a Tragic Laughter", "The Burning Question..of the Diary of Lord Byron" (English)Anyway, much success with the Irish Theater.

Your theater's founders had come to Springfield to participate In St. Patrick's Day. Their pictures appeared in our local paper. I clipped it and sent it on to the theater.

The Emperor Jones was so outrageously outstanding that I saw it 3 times. It wasn't only the extraordinary acting of John Duncan Thompson, but the creative set, costumes, dance, music, drums, hums, and so much more, that it brought me back twice after first seeing it. Hooray for the Irish Rep Theatre Company!

bring its amazing theatre to the world. Imagine bringing Emperor Jones to cities and towns across the country!

We love the Irish Rep!!! We saw "Earnest in Love" last Sunday (1/31/10) and highly recommend it. However, our hands-down favorite is "A Child's Christmas in Wales." We've seen both your upstairs and downstairs productions -- each wonderful in its own way. My wife and I met in Great Britain and had the priviledge of hearing Gareth Lloyd Evans, the drama critic on the London Times, do a reading of this Dylan Thomas piece. These are the things that memories are made of! Your holiday production of ...Wales brings back fond, fond memories. Please keep up such wonderful work!
