Product Description

{#The Irish...And How They Got That Way} is a video recording of a stage production by {$Frank McCourt}, the celebrated author of {-Angela's Ashes}, at the {~Irish Repertory Theatre} in New York. The two-hour-long show features five performers (one of them {$McCourt}'s niece) celebrating the Irish-American immigrant experience in word and music against the backdrop of a historical sideshow. Act I recounts British oppression of the Irish, culminating in the Potato Famine and waves of mass immigration to the United States. Act II focuses on the Irish contribution to American society as fighters in the Civil War, martyrs in the labor movement, as entertainers, and as statesmen. Fans of {$Frank McCourt} will appreciate the trademark humor and irreverence that flows throughout, a quality that seems to be the major strength of what would otherwise be a run-of-the-mill performance piece. ~ Connor McMadden, Rovi
