Top notch performances by the 6 actors, all of whom had wonderful voices and told an incredible story of the Irish and truly "how they got that way" ... bit of a history lesson along with the music.

Great history lesson of the Irish/American people, their experiences and their wonderful contributions to the world. Performed with humor, drama, music, and appreciation of all things Irish. Very talented, professional, engaging performers.
