When you're an actor you can only hope that you'll be proud to be part of a production,to be in the company of fine actors,to be treated with respect and support by the creative team and to be playing for an audience that is used to good theatre.All this and a great deal more is what I experienced at Irish Rep. New York is lucky to have them!

It's a true artist's community and every time one works there the family gets larger. They really go above and beyond just producing theatre. It's a welcoming and nurturing home.

The Irish Repertory Theatre is arguably the best Irish theatre anywhere. I have been a patron and sometime participant for over 20 years.The quality of acting, directing and production values are always top drawer.They also make courageous choices and always deliver the goods. In my opinion, it is a National Treasure

As a professional actor one of my most rewarding experiences has been as a member of the acting company at the Irish Rep. I have also attended many productions as an enthusiastic audience member and a financial contributor. On all levels I have been embraced warmly, welcomed as a member of the "family". All the productions have been superb with the recent EMPEROR JONES reaching extraordinary heights of brilliance, innovation, and imagination. Unforgettable!

I have had the pleasure of working with the Irish Rep as an actor and have also attended many performances there. My experiences on both counts have been wonderful. The company is run by people with a strong awareness of community and a true love for what they do. There is always a great sense of family and fun coupled with a high level of professionalism and mutual respect towards colleagues and clientele. The Irish Rep's work reaches beyond its physical space in a most positive way.

The Irish Rep is such a wonderful place to see theatre. Certainly my favorite Off-Broadway venue, it's always so warm and welcoming to come to, a real family atmosphere, while the performances on stage combine the best in skilled storytelling and theatrical ambition. Whether it's taking chances on new material, such as in the recent "When I Was God," bravely bringing fresh life to classics, such as in their recent outstanding production of "The Emperor Jones," or just plain being the best place to see Irish drama done richly and truthfully, as in their recent moving "Aristocrats," the Irish Rep is unique, vital and leading the way for other theatres to follow. I know I never miss a show there.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their producing deep, earthy, thought-provoking drama, that a wide audience can appreciate.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get to work there more often!

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

Their wonderful, ever-welcoming, positive family atmosphere.

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

Always utterly helpful, greatly generous, highly knowledgable and professional, and always good-humoured.

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

Produce more and more ambitious projects, with larger casts, and further develop its 2ndry space into a black box for developing even more new material, concurrent with the bigger shows.

Ways to make it better...

More theatres in NY were this warm and welcoming.

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

Maintaining their high standards and keeping audiences challenged and involved when surrounded by so much junk-entertainment.

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

Charlotte and Ciaran, who run the Rep, are mavericks and brilliant, do amazing things with small resources, and don't get half the kudos they deserve.

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.

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

completely dedicated. It feels like a family at the theatre, with everyone going way above and beyond what is expected from them.
