For the past several years, I have attended most of the productions offered by the Irish Repertory Theatre. I continue to go there because of their wonderfully interesting choice of plays, the consistent excellence of the actors, and the amazing creativity and imagination of their productions in that tiny space with limited financial resources. But even after years of being impressed with their work, nothing could have prepared me for the brilliance of their production of "Emperor Jones". I saw it a couple of years ago in a huge production at the National Theatre in London; at the time, I thought it was pretty good, but by comparison it didn't even come close to the extraordinary experience that Irish Rep gave us! If this is what they can do on a shoestring, just imagine what they could do with sufficient financial support!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
consistently good productions.
