The Irish Rep never fails to inspire. This intimate setting is home to some of the best theater in all of New York... polished, intelligent, provocative, and always entertaining. The highlight of this year's season for me was The Emperor Jones—a glittering production that featured the prodigious talent of John Douglas Thompson. What a thrill!

I LOVE everything about the IRISH REPERTORY THEATRE - it's flawless execution of great plays: casting, acting, costumes, musical arrangements, scenery, lighting, choreography, and staff. The quality of the patrons it attracts is especially delightful, too. The last show I ushered was "Ernest in Love", this past Sunday (February 7, 2010). I heard about the glowing review that the show had gotten, but I went thinking that no show would match such a review, not for me. Happily, I was wrong. The show itself ("Ernest in Love"), the production, and the whole experience was over-the-top superb! By means of comparison, please note that I recently (two weeks ago, for the first time) saw "Wicked". With a wonderful 2nd-row-center Mezzanine seat, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The clever story was new to me and I loved learning that the 'wicked' witch was not only NOT wicked, but that she "lived happily ever after". The performances, sound system, and costumes, all was tops. Again, for Broadway, it was great! Nevertheless, "Ernest in Love" was - by far! -- the better show and experience. At the IRISH REP, I was able to catch every facial nuance and I could distinctly understand ALL the wonderful lyrics. The show was more than just (just?) a clever story. It was the product of brilliant collaboration, in intimate and comfortable space, for the benefit of the very best audience experience. Yes indeed, all-in-all, in my humble opinion, "Ernest in Love" was much better than "Wicked" because it was produced at the Irish Repertory Theatre. Who am I? I am someone who selectively attends 25-45 shows per year. I highly recommend full support for and frequent attendance at the IRISH REPERTORY THEATRE... Box Office: (212) 727-2737

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

... hire me to be an even more intregal part of their staff ('more' than a regular volunteer).

More feedback...

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

...The quality of the productions is dependably superb.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

... professional, joyously efficient, and a pleasure to work with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

... buy the adjoining building just for additional bathroom facilities. Otherwise, the Irish Repertory could not do any better.

Ways to make it better...

I'm sorry, even I couldn't find a single fault. Yep, it was flawless.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

... overcoming the economic realities of the world-at-large. Still, they handle these hurdles all the time and I have every faith in their continuance.

One thing I'd also say is that...

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.
