Had a enjoyable evening here, with dinner before in the bar area. The show is in the lovely dining room of Chief O'Neill's, with rows of chairs replacing the tables. A 4 piece band, dancer, and singers tell the story of Chief O'Neill and his work to notate the Irish songs he loved. This I knew about, but who knew he protected Emma Goldmann and was the first to promote a black policeman? If you want to see the feet of the step dancer, get there early and sit in the first two rows. Otherwise, any seat is good. A fine entertainment for the price of a movie.
